How can I create a table/chart with a range of number, not just the one in the data.

Mark Waller asked on November 28, 2020

I have some usage data which I am using to create a chart showing count by day of the week. The data has some gaps, i.e. on some days there is no usage, there are no rows with that day.
How can I create a chart with a range of values on the x-axis include the missing days? i.e. show a zero count on the day with no usage.

Hi Mark,
Thank you for posting your question.
As long as the input data set contains the days where there is no usage (e.g., a day member with 0 value), the chart should be displayed as expected.
In case your data does not contain the day members in question, we would recommend preprocessing the data set to add the missing days with 0 values to ensure all the days are displayed in the chart.
Please let us know if this helps.
Best regards,

Yes, that worked – I added null events on each day and it fixed the problem.

Actually this solution doesn’t entirely work. If I have a report that includes a filter, perhaps for license type, then the null rows get filtered out. It isn’t practical to add a whole set of null rows for every possible field we might want to filter by. 
Is there another way to do this?
