Hi, @favlucas 

 

Can you check that your values are exactly null? Is it possible that the blanks in your data aren't really nulls or blanks? They might be a non-printing character or space. In such cases, the above-mentioned steps will not work.

 

if its a space you need to put space in the value to replace the field.

Hello guys, I will post another example that might be better to understand. 

When I add a colum, as below, my table does not appear the data anymore;

My table before adding a columnMy table before adding a columnI click on transform dataI click on transform dataselect the tableselect the tablethen I click on add columnn based on delivery data, to show me the  name of the daythen I click on add columnn based on delivery data, to show me the name of the daythis is my database after that, everything is right so farthis is my database after that, everything is right so farthen, when I click on close and apply and go back to my table, every information is gonethen, when I click on close and apply and go back to my table, every information is gone

 

Hi @rubayatyasmin thank you for your contribuition. 

The issue is not related to replacing the blank on the field, this point aleady done. 

The point is when I replace it, my table does not appear any information anymore, even with any filter. 

Tray data source refresh after loading.

Hi @mlsx4 

Actually this is a card, apart from the table just showing the quantity of itens that I have in this table. 

Thank you for your message, but I dont think this is the issue. 

 

Okey @favlucas . And have you checked any possible filter that could be active?

And if you start now constructing another table in a empty page, do you have the same problem?

 

Also, I suppose you are using a measure or a later step to rename all specialties... Have you checked it too?

Thank you @mlsx4 

I checked the filters and it is not the case as well.

When I excluded the table and created other, some informations that are related to other tables comes in blank for me, even though the relations among the tables are active. please, check below:

The columns above that are in blank are client name and specialty name, respectively. 

 

Another thing, is the replaced id the link key with the table specialty? If so, public specialty should have replaced it too

Hi @favlucas 

 

You have some strange column which is shown (in blank). May the problem come from it?
