In Desktop, in the model, on the Modeling tab, highlight the column or measure and in the ribbon in the Formatting area, use the $ drop down to change the format.

You must select a column first and go to modelling and then check the format if the format is currency you select the relevent currency. I can not see you can do in bulk.

Hi, I am trying to format a field "actuals" to currency in query editor. Unlike desktop, I don't see how to set the format for the field to currency. 

I am trying to do this in power query so that when I change my datasource, the measures based on that field don't lose its formatting.

Could anybody please help me with this?

measure = IF([column name]>10000000,
format([column name]/10000000,"₹ ##0.0 Cr"),
if([column name]>100000,format([column name]/100000,"₹ ##.0 L"),[column name]))

in currency symbol there is also available 

 

My requirment was different . Client wants his amount should appear like (Arab Emirates Dirham)
AED 3,00,000,00
AED 2,00,000,00

I have acheived this through custom format using below code by applying in Modeling Tab format option.
"AED" #,0.###############;#,0.############### -"AED";"AED" #,0.###############

In this you have to replace whatever Symbol or text you want to use.

I have the same issue here, Could anyone advis.

measure = IF([column name]>10000000,
format([column name]/10000000,"##0.0 Crد.إ"),
if([column name]>100000,format([column name]/100000,"##.0 Lد.إ"),[column name]))

My tests suggest that it uses the currency symbol set within the measure. So if you change that to £ you should get what you need. Hope this works for you. 

Hello,

Can I ask what would cuase the options under the modeling tab to be greyed out? I know I have added the currency symbols before. I am using a measure that is (quantity ordered * price) and its set to decimal number as data type. Oddly using a simple card visual I can't use the modeling tab. I have tried creating my measure in both the query editor and the regular home tab. 

 

thanks!

im an idiot, never mind! Select the field in your table, dont click the visual. 

 

Smiley Very Happy
