Change bar colour depending on percentage change from trend line

Hello

What formula can I use in a custom column to give a sales value a number based on criteria below. I am checking percentage difference in sales for each period against budget for each period and wanting to to use a custom column to change the colour of the bar, just am not very good with DAX.

1) If sales for period is more than 10% under budget then the bar is red, example below is P02 (sales 15 budget 30 = 50% under budget = 1)

2) if sales for period is within 10% of budget then bar is amber, example below is P08 (sales 38 Budget 40 = 10% within budget) or P11 (sales 32 budget 30 = 10% within budget = 2)

3) If sales for period is more than 10% over budget then bar is green, example below is P06 (sales 41 budget 30 = 24% over budget = 3)

Hi  @Brassodin ,

I created some data:

Here are the steps you can follow：

1. Create measure.

``````Measure =
DIVIDE(
MAX('MainTable'[Sales]),MAX('MainTable'[Budget])) -1``````
``````color =
SWITCH(
TRUE(),
[Measure] >= -0.5 && [Measure]<-0.1,"#4CAF50",
[Measure] >= -0.1 && [Measure]<=0.1,"#FFC107",
[Measure] > 0.1,"#f44336")``````

2. Format – Data color – Default color – fx.

3. Enter Default color – Data colors.

Format by – Field value

Based on field – [measure]

4. Result:

Best Regards,

Liu Yang
