How to handle BLANK in DAX measures
This article describes a counterintuitive behavior of BLANK in DAX measures affecting Power BI, Analysis Services, and Power Pivot. That behavior could cause mistakes in a report using alternate expressions of the same calculation. Indeed, these expressions are not equivalent when BLANK is involved. » Read more
Handling BLANK in DAX
The blank value in DAX is a special value requiring particular attention in comparisons. It is not like the special null value in SQL, and it could appear in any conversion from a table expression. This article explores in details the behavior of the blank value in DAX, highlighting a common error in DAX expressions […] » Read more
