I am assuming you want to return 'table1' if 'Blank' is selected with the parameter and 'table1_dev' if '_dev' is selected.
In that case you would need to change your code to 

Table1 = dba{[Name= if parameter="blank" then "table1" else "table1" & parameter ,Kind="Table"]}[Data],....

You cannot have a blank value in the parameter list.
To workaround you can add 'Blank' to the parameter list and then use an if statement to ignore the parameter if 'Blank' is selected.
