Conditional Formatting font text Amber

Is there a way to change the font colour of a text column [BRAG STATUS] with the values "Green", "Amber" & "Red"

 

I'm able to use conditional formatting to get a value by field for the first values (see pic attached) but it doesn't pick up the amber colour:Colour Formatting.GIF

I've even tried to use a switch function to change the HEX colours but I still cant quite get it

 

Conditional Colour Format = SWITCH(TRUE(),MAX(audit_results[BRAG STATUS])="Green",1,MAX(audit_results[BRAG STATUS])="Amber",2,MAX(audit_results[BRAG STATUS])="Red",3)

 

Any help on this would be great!

 

Thanks,

BRAG STATUS Column2
Red 1
Amber 2
Green 3
Red 4
Amber 5
Green 6
Red 2

 

DAX measure

 

Conditional_Colour_Format =
VAR __status =
    CALCULATE ( FIRSTNONBLANK ( audit_results[BRAG STATUS], TRUE () ) )
VAR __color =
    SWITCH ( __status, "Green", "#4CAF50", "Amber", "#FFC107", "Red", "#f44336" )
RETURN
    __color

@Neill_ , As per this Amber is supported

https://blog.crossjoin.co.uk/2018/08/10/colour-names-supported-in-power-bi-conditional-formatting/

 

Hexcode you have to return with #. Hope you are using "Field" option and measure. Make sure you created a measure not column

 

https://radacad.com/dax-and-conditional-formatting-better-together-find-the-biggest-and-smallest-num...
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-conditional-table-formatting#color-by-color-values

 

color =
switch ( true(),
FIRSTNONBLANK(Table[commodity],"NA") ="commodity1" && sum(Table[Value]) >500,"lightgreen",
FIRSTNONBLANK(Table[commodity],"NA") ="commodity2" && sum(Table[Value]) >1000,"lightgreen",
/// Add more conditions
"red"
)

I have this measure but it cant load the data for the visual:

 

color =
switch ( true(),
FIRSTNONBLANK('audit_results'[BRAG STATUS],"NA") ="GREEN" && sum('audit_results'[BRAG STATUS]) ="GREEN","lightgreen",
FIRSTNONBLANK('audit_results'[BRAG STATUS],"NA") ="RED" && sum('audit_results'[BRAG STATUS]) = "RED","red",
)
 
 
The error is "MdxScript(Model) (22,70) Calculation error in measure 'audit_results'[color]: The function SUM cannot work with values of type String

HI @Neill_ ,

 

See if this helps.
