Method 1

select the Table - go to the Paint Brush - Conditional Formatting - select the field - turn on data bars - click Advanced Controls

make the adjustments in the pop up window

Method 2

Again select the Table - In the Values area - click on the triangle to the right of the field - select Conditional Formatting - Data Bars

you'll get the same pop up where you can adjust

I responded to quick - without reading your question all the way Smiley Happy

So you should actually try the Color Scales

Since the Data Bars at this time at least can't do what you are trying to achieve

Here're the results... Smiley Happy

Hi @chotu27 , 

 

Can you explain how you achieved this result? I am trying to do the same thing.

How? Seems like you put a bar chart next to a matrix and just lined them up as opposed to an actual data bar within the table. Is that right?

Hi

 

Let's rescue some like me that searched answer for this

 

To have 1 color

Any barchar let you have one color

Insertyour measure in the value field

Then go second pane, format pane

And finaly, Data color to change your color

 

To have 2 colors

At least with matrixes

Insert your value(s)

How to 1.PNG

As you click on this button you can see conditional formating, and 3 choices. The last one is data bars

Use it as you want. Data bar permit only 2 colors. Background and font color permit 3 colors

 

To have 3 colors

To have three colors, or you have the matrix and, just said two lines up, you can have backround colors

Or you can use a column chart. Insert Measure in your value field and the measure to refer colors to on the color saturation.

then second pane, data colors, and you can have a diverging color difining 3 colors.

 

If a develloper read it, please enable the ability to have just three colors, not a scale going from first color to second then from second to third color. When you go on the road with green orange red, you do not have mid colors. Thanks 😉
