Why GetSelectedCount () changes the display ...?

Hi everyone,

I have a model on Qlick Sense that show the sales behavior of a specific category (Events), for a certain period of time. We currently have registers from sales for three years: 2015-2017.

The objective was to show, by default, the 2017 results, as long as there wasn´t any year selected on  the "SalesYear" filter (AñoVenta in Spanish).

Tha´ts why I decided to use the function GetSelectedCount() that returns the number of selections active on a filter. If this number is cero then there are no active selections, which then should trigger the default behavior of showing just 2017.

The expression I used was:

if (GetSelectedCount([AñoVenta])= 0,






On the chart, however, all years are show in the dimension axis, with only the months of 2017 showing any values. The others are shown with values of 0:


In contrast, this is the original expression:




That shows this chart, which is the one I want:


I would like to know why including that "if" changes the chart so much, and if there is a way to avoid that...

This is how the screen looks with the filters:

Have you unchecked 'Include Zero Values' under Data handling?
