I have a chart and I would like to display all records with a null value in my expression. Currently the expression returns records with a value of <0, but I would also like to see nulls. I have played around with if(IsNull...) and LEN(TRIM) have not gotten it to work yet. Here is my current expresion, and I'm attaching a sample. I want to list all store numbers with <= 0 cases shipped. Does anyone know if it is possible to identify nulls in this way?
Having looked at the display options for the chart in your example, the data you want to show as 0 is not a null value, but a missing value (chart properties -> presentation and change the null and missing symbol options).
So you could just set the missing symbol to be 0? Otherwise you might be able to force the missing data to be nulls with a value of 0 in the load script.
Thanks for the suggestion. Changing the the null & missing symbols did not change the result. I added an image that shows the result I am looking for in my sample. I can't change the load script, so my solution will have to be in the object itself.
maybe like attached? Doing this in the frontend is quite a heavy requirement, since as stated above, it's not a NULL problem, it's a missing problem.
I could build a string with all values for Store#, though, and a string with the 'non voids', then I needed to subtract both strings, the resulting code looks a bit strange, cause you need to iterate within an expression over substrings, I used valueloop for that (I really begin to like this function).
Maybe I missed a much easier solution, I had fun doing the string subtraction anyway.
