Dynamic format string numbers on export dont produce readable numbers for excel

DO NOT LINK ME TO IRRELEVENT ARTICLES PLEASE.

My Format code used for my report is:

 

SWITCH(
    true(),
    SELECTEDMEASURE()>999999999,"€#,##0,,,.0B",
    SELECTEDMEASURE()>999999,"€#,##0,,.00M",
    SELECTEDMEASURE()>999,"€#,##0,.00K","€#,##0.0")


Now, a sample of exported data , notice the "M" which makes  a nonsense of the numbers(The M should not be there at all)

Yr 2021
€5188341.90M
€5216550.00M
€796085.00K
€2523204.00M
€2894047.00M
€3039211.00M

 

sample of data where this formatting isnt applied (Readible by excel) - any ideas to get the the above like the below?

Yr 2022
€5,434,226
€5,310,134
€2,962,617
€2,860,899
€2,853,057

Hi @StephenF ,

Is the following result after format? If so, what 's the original data. 

Yr 2021
€5188341.90M
€5216550.00M
€796085.00K
€2523204.00M
€2894047.00M
€3039211.00M

I create a sample with the below fact data.

Yr 2021
5188341.90
5216550.00
796085.00
2523204.00
2894047.00
3039211.00
Measure =
MAX ( 'Table'[Yr 2021] )

Measure can get the correct result with the format formula you provided.

Not sure what's the difference with your sample, I attach my sample below for your reference.

Basically its the exported output file which includes non numerical elements for numerical columns when dynamic formatting for numbers is applied. eg the "M" part or "K" part is exported rsther then a pure number understandable by excel.
