IF statement for value 0

Occasional Contributor

I need to be able to differentiate 0 vs blank values in a DAX formula. 

I've tried using ==0 for the number 0 and ="" for blanks, but == seems so be giving error in my DAX formula. How do I make this work? Attached a simplified dummy file, but with the same problem scenario. 


DAX that gives no errors:

=IF(C5=0, "order more", IF(C5 ="", "unavailable", "OK"))

What I would like to do but can't get to work:
=IF(C5==0, "order more", IF(C5 ="", "unavailable", "OK"))
