Dynamically changing the currency symbol (DAX?)



I currently have a report where I convert from multiple currencies back to our base and other currencies. 

So user in europe can look at the report in Euro, U.S. in $, U.K. in £ and so on so forth.

This works fine and I am able with dax to output the correct conversion amount. 

However I need the charts to oupt the values with their corresponding currency symbols. 

I was considering using DAX FORMAT method but this outputs the value as a string and I end up with a count of these string values rather than a sum. 


I can obviously set the column to a specific currency using the modelling section in Desktop but that is static. I needs to change as the user switches the currency with on slicers on the page.


Thanks in advance

Hi @lloydz1,


>>I needs to change as the user switches the currency with on slicers on the page.

Based on test, power bi desktop not support to dynamic change the currency symbol. Current it only allow to use format function to change the display text(it will convert the value to text) or use format tab to manual change the currency.


By the way, dax formula also not support your requirement. Perhaps you can submit it to ideas.
