To forecast, data cannot have empty values

My graph used to forecast fine, but now, after updating the dataset, I have the following error: "to forecast, data cannot have empty values". I'm not sure how to approach this one. I would like to forecast up to 2026, but it seems I have an empty field (see image below). The Y axis is coming from a measure, the code is shown below. The X axis is a calendar that was generated from 2021 to 2026. Any help would be super appreciated! Thanks



Remaining Tokens02 = 
VAR __StartingTokens = 375802 
VAR __MaxDate = MAX('Date Table'[StartDate])
    __StartingTokens - 
        'Date Table'[StartDate] <= __MaxDate,

Hi @jfn ,

I think this may be caused by relationship between tables, try to modify the formula like this:

Remaining Tokens02 =
VAR __StartingTokens = 375802
VAR __MaxDate =
    MAX ( 'Date Table'[StartDate] )
    IF (
        MAX ( [StartDate] ) <> BLANK (),
            - CALCULATE (
                SUM ( Token2021[Credits] ),
                'Date Table'[StartDate] <= __MaxDate,
                ALL ( Token2021[StartDate] )

With this formulae, I still have an empty row (pic below)... Not sure if this is related, but here's how I generated the dates (for reference).




Date Table = CALENDAR(DATE(2021,01,01),TODAY())
