Dynamic Number Format In PBI Measure

I have division measure, which contains values some of them should be displayed as %, and the rest as numbers, formatting should be based on another values in another feild.

for example if attribute=ABC then measure should be in percentage else should be shown in number.

my organisation doesnt allow tabular editor, so please suggest a solution that doesnt contain tabular editor.

Hi @Zaytoon 
You can do

Mesure2 = 
VAR Value1 = [Measure1]
RETURN
IF ( SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table'[Attribute] = "ABC", FORMAT ( Value1, "Percent" ), Value1 )

FORMAT returns a string ( text data type) l. The chart cannot determine a value of a text and hence cannot plot a text.
