Count Text Values, but return ) not (Blank) - Power BI

Hi Folks

I created a measure to count how many Overdue projects appear in a list

Overdue Count = CALCULATE( COUNTROWS( 'Project Overview'), 'Project Overview'[Overdue Flag] = "Overdue")

I created the Overdue flag in the source table first, so line by line there is either Overdue / Near Due or blank cells

Where a Project Manager has no Overdue projects, the Measure returns (Blank) (in my card visual)

Does anyone have any tips for telling the measure to return Zero instead?

Wrap your function with COALESCE.

So COALESCE([Your Measure], 0)

COALESCE returns the first non-blank value, so if Your Measure is blank, it will default to the 0.
