Switch between Currency and Number

Hi all!

I have a report where I would like to put a switch on top as a slicer to switch between currency and units.

For this objective I started with this approach:

SWITCH A = 
VAR _Selection = SELECTEDVALUE('Currency/ Volume'[ID])
VAR _Volume = FORMAT(DIVIDE(SUM('Sales'[Value 1]),1000), "#,##K")
VAR _Dollar = FORMAT(DIVIDE(SUM('Sales'[Value 1 $]),1000), "$ #,##K")

RETURN
IF(_Selection = 1, _Dollar, _Volume) 

 

I have an unrelated table with 2 columns

Dimension ID
Currency 1
Volumne 2

 

Based on the selection of ID (1 or 2), I switch within the measure to Units or Dollars.

But now I get a Text Format as a result in the matrix. I would still like to have a number column in the matrix in the end with all values on the right alligned.

 

Any thoughts / optimizations on the approach above?

How would you do it?

Hi  ,

I would do this with a calculation group:

Expression:selectedmeasure()

Format string expression:

IF(SELECTEDVALUE('Selection for V/C'[value]="Currency", "$ #,##K", selectedmeasureformatstring())

@ValtteriN :Thanks for sharing. Is it possible to use the same approach to switch between a Volume and a Dollar column with the indidivudal format? As of now it changing just the format for a single column, right?

@ValtteriN : Thanks a lot for providing this. It seems like the same column is display once in units and once in dollars, right?

But what I need is something the also multiplies the units into a dollar value. I have a column with units, I have a column with the price per unit and then if needed I have a calculated column with the total dollars (units x price)

@ValtteriN THanks a lot! Any workourant without Tabular Editor? I am not allowed to use this software.

@joshua1990  you can also manage calculation groups in Visual studio or after the upcoming release announced at MS Build calculation groups will be available in Power BI desktop. I think this was scheduled for June's release.
