Slicer settings "Between" - include blank values


I am looking for a solution to a small problem I am currently facing. 

I have a slicer where decimal numbers can be filtered, the slicer is set on "Between" so that the user can import a start value and an end value. The column where the filter applies has many null values as well and these values are unfortunately not taken into account when using the between setting. 

Is there a solution?

thank you

Hi @v-rongtiep-msft 


Thanks a lot for your prompt answer. Here some sample. I tested your ssolution and have some doubts/issues 

11 65
12 45
14 16


Let me explain what I did first: I uploaded the same file twice and created a Dimension Area to relate the 2 tables and being able to "filter" them both through the same slicer. This is as well what I need in my original file.

In one table I applied your suggestion and now the data type is whole number with Format 


I left the area column of the other table as decimal.

Here the result:



- When using your format the data in the table will be shown as %, I have to overcome this issue since my user needs to see the proper data type in the Report table.

- As you see from the picture when using your solution I am able in the slicer (which uses the DimensionArea values Fromatted as decimal) to insert the 0 and have the table showing nnull values as well. This doesn't happen in the not formatted table, there those null values are not taken into account (see price average)

- Data model: the relationship between the dimension and facts is many to many, and must be it if I want to create any. Is there a chance to change it and have it one to many when not Text and with null values?



Thans a lot for your support
