Random gotcha when filtering values greater than 0 in PowerBI

This might be know to all PowerBI guru’s out there, but as I’m a newbie doing this and couldn’t find an article right away I figured I’d jot it down for future reference. And a big thank you to my colleague Marius (the CRM Viking), for letting me in on this secret.

I was trying to add a filter to a visualization, showing only values greater than 0.

for some unknown reason this did not work for some of my datasets. I could see a big fat zero in the data set, but the data still showed after I applied the filter. Changing to “is greater than or equal to 1” did the trick.

Could be something obvious wrong in my data transformation – but might be worth trying if you are trying to filter on values greater than zero/0.
