Add coalesce empty to existing calculated measure

I think (hope) this is a pretty simple thing to do and I just am not versed enough in the MDX syntax to figure it out.

I have a calculated measure that is pulling the property of a custom field, ‘Engagement Manager’. It looks like this:
[Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember.get(‘Engagement Manager’),

The result is it tells me the name of the user in that field, which is perfect. However, if there is a null entry in that field, it shows up as ‘(none)’. I’d like to re-label that as something else, let’s say ‘Company Contact’. I am pretty sure that CoalesceEmpty is the function that will do this for me, but I haven’t had success adding it to the above measure. Can someone help me see how to add it to the existing measure above? What I tried previously was:

[Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember.get(‘Engagement Manager’),
CoalesceEmpty([Measures].[Issue Engagement Manager],‘Company Contact’)


Hi @MBriede ,
Try using NonEmptyString() with Replace(), here is my example using property “Issue T-shirt size”:

  Replace([Measures].[Issue T-shirt size], '(none)', 'New value for this shirt')

In the report you can see the difference:

Thank you, Gerda! That did the trick.
