# What formula can I use to display positive numbers Only in a visual? 0 and above?

I’m trying to display positive numbers only on a display without using the 0 reference on Y-axis of the line chart, using a calculated field. Like an ifelse statement but I was trying to see if there was another function I should be using?

Hi there e2s,

On a particular visual you can either:

• Do as you have described and create a new calculated field including only values greater on 0.
• or alternatively you can configure a filter that is only applied to that visual which filters for greater than 0 on the original field.

Hope that helps!

Ok I think I worded the title incorrectly,

I need to only see numbers above ‘zero’, the problem with this answer @robkc is that I have positive and negative numbers in a calculated field and I need to see the TOTAL SUM of those numbers over a day or an hour.

If i only look at ‘positive’ numbers, it filters all the ‘negative’ number from the field and the balance of the SUM is incorrect. if that makes sense?

I’m using a calculated field, to give me the balance of what’s left and only show me numbers above ‘Zero’ because of the timing sometimes I get a balance that is a negative number.

the calculated field is: Supply - Consumer A - Consumer B = Consumer C

'Consumer C is the balance of the Supply’ and due to Timing -say there hasn’t been a refresh of the ‘Supply data’ I get a negative balance but I would rather see ‘Consumer C’ = ‘Zero’ or NULL.

Essentially ‘Hide’ the negative numbers some how in a visual?

Hi e2s-
You can add an ifelse in the calculation and set the value to zero if it’s below zero.
See ifelse examples here.

Hi Kellie,

The IFelse statement doesn’t work because there’s negative numbers and positive numbers and I need to know the overall balance for the SUM for the day.

When I use the IFelse statements it excludes the negative numbers because it’s only calculating and adding up numbers above ‘0’ and I end up with an incorrect SUM. The balance of the SUM is not truely represented. (I hope that makes sense)

I’ve managed to fix it myself just using a Filter ‘Greater than’ 0 on the SUM of the Calculated field (Consumer C).
