Format number in matrix

Hi,

 

Is it possible to format a number as a percentage or a whole number in a matrix depending on a value?

In the example below I would like the 7.00% for Likeability to be a whole number so 7.00 without the percentage.

The measure is formatted a percentage.

 

Thanks

Hi @ADP007 

Power BI column or measure could be formatted in one data type. So if you format your OOH measure as Percentage data type, all values from this measure will show in Percentage. You can try if function to achieve your goal. New measure will be formatted as text type.

Try this measure.

New_OOH = 
SWITCH(TRUE(),MAX('Table'[KPI]) = "Likeability",FORMAT([OOH]*100,"#.00"),FORMAT([OOH],"#.00%"))

Result is as below.
