Conditional formatting in a table

Hey All, I have an assignment that requires a conditional formatting in table for a txt field.
The possible Values are "Red"/"Green"/ "Yellow".
I have created another column and converted these values to 0,1,2.
.I'm currently facing two issues:
1. In the table I have two text columns that contains these values like "Project Status", "Budget Status", one of them could be "Yellow" and the other one "Red". Is there any convinient solution for this?
2. When converting to 0,1,2 I can't hide these values from the column (I wanted to only leave the cell color without any value). We have the orignal reportSSRS , that one, however, contains Traffic light indicators instead on the ""Red"/"Green"/ "Yellow"
. a Snapshot from PowerBI:

I feel like this is not a real solution. Any help/idea for a solution would be greatly appreciated!

Hi @parry2k,


Thanks for the refernce.


In terms of hiding the font in the formatted columns - what do I do when I have 3 values and not just 2 has the video shows?

I do i hide the values from all three?



Hi @Ronnie7,


In Power BI, there is no OOTB feature for us to set the visibility of column or row values. The workaround is try to set the Font color or Alternative font color similar to the highlighted color.
