## Count if not null

Hi Everyone

I have table like this

DateUserId
01/01/201823625
01/01/201636251
Null20148
Null32598
05/06/201814587

I want a measure to  Count UserId whose date is not null

I found lots of options but none of them is working.

## Re: Count if not null

If so: try:

count({<Date=-{'Null'}>}UsedId)

or

count({<Date=-{''}>}UsedId)

or

count({<Date=-{"=len(trim(Date))=0"}>}UsedId)

or

count({<Date=-{"=isNull(Date)=-1"}>}UsedId)

(depends on how ur null values are defined)

ps: Qlik does not count Null values that appear as '-' in grey

I am not sure what the problem is here - Count() only counts non-nulls by default.

Perhaps if you provided slightly more information, the problem would be clearer.

I think his Null values are defined as  Strings.. not really Null values.. but maybe spaces.. don't know
