Hi @Vivek26 ,


As @Vivek26  said, there's currently unsupported. However, here's a workaround in this similar post you can refer to

Solved: Can we change the colors of data bars In table - Microsoft Power BI Community.

The workaround is to put a bar chart next to a matrix and just lined them up as opposed to an actual data bar within the table.
