Dynamic Format Strings For Chinese Culture Measure

Dear all,

I'm currently facing an issue of creating dynamic format strings for Chinese audiences. 
We often use a symbol to represent 10K instead of only using thousand and million.

Currently I'm trying to use the dynamic format to fufill my requirement, if the number is lower than 1 million(let's say 51,000), I would prefer the number to show 5.1 (10K),The following code is what I've tried in FORMAT:


SWITCH(

        TRUE(),
        SELECTEDMEASURE() < 1000000, FORMAT(SELECTEDMEASURE() / 10000, "#,0.0 (10k)",
        "$#,##0,,.0 M"
)

The outcome returns 51 (10k) Instead of 5.1 (10K), which part am I doing wrong?
Any help is appreciated, 

Thanks!

Hi @alexyin1053 

Since the (10k) format is produced by constructing the formatted value itself, it must be enclosed in double-quotes.

 

Try this:

VAR DoubleQuoteChar = """"
RETURN
    SWITCH (
        TRUE ( ),
        SELECTEDMEASURE ( ) < 1000000,
            DoubleQuoteChar & FORMAT ( SELECTEDMEASURE ( ) / 10000, "#,0.0" ) & " (10k)" & DoubleQuoteChar,
        "$#,##0,,.0 M"
    )
