DAX Format Function

Hi Everyone, 


I have a mesaure where i am dealing with a absolute value and percentage value using switch function. 


for percentage i am using Format function with dot and % sign. 


problem is that once i am changing the language of power bi service, % decimal seprator is not changing, it is remaining as dot, instead of comma. I want it change based on the language selection of power bi service. 


is there any way to solve this issue?

@TaroGulati , do not use the format function. just use property  from measure/column tools and then check

@amitchandak i can't use measure/column tools. I have absolute and % values inside same measure. so i can't define a fix format for both from measure tools. 


thanks for your suggestion.
