@Anonymous , Create a color measure like the one given below and use that in matrix in conditional formatting -> Advance option -> Field Value

 

Switch( Max(Table[Type]),
"01.Actual" , "orange",
"02.Budget" , "green",
"03.Forecast" , "blue",
"White"
)

HI @Anonymous,

In fact, the conditional formatting feature allows you to use other field values for formatting.

For your requirement, you can write measure expressions to extract the current category value for color formatting.

Using the SELECTEDVALUE function in DAX - SQLBI
