Is it possible to put "N/A" instead of Blank values in a sales column of numeric data type? How?

I have a sales table, data type: Whole number. In that, there are multiple blank/null cells. But I want to display those Blank/null cells as "N/A" in table visual sales column.

Sales
10,000
500,000
234,500
 
790,000,000
 
56,342,800
20,000,000
3,457,600,000
2,000,000

 

Want to display above table as below by using 'Table visual'. Please note, the column must have thousand separater (",") for numeric values.

Sales
10,000
500,000
234,500
 N/A 
790,000,000
 N/A 
56,342,800
20,000,000
3,457,600,000
2,000,000

 

I tried by converting number column into text data type, but the resulted values did not have thousand separater (","). 

 

Please suggest possible way to replace "N/A" for blank/null values, in addition, numeric values must contain thousand separater (",") in the same column. Thanks

Here's some code for a calculated column. If you want to keep the order (because this will be a text column) you can select the calculated column we're making and select "Order by" at the top, and choose the original column with the numbers. I think this should work 🙂 

Calculated Sales Column = IF( ISBLANK(Table[Sales]), "N/A", FORMAT(Table[Sales], "#,0") )

HI @Happy333,

AFAIK, current you can't customize the default null value strings. Power bi will force convert the field to text due to there are multiple type data values in one field. Perhaps you can submit an idea to add options to custom the default null value formats.
