Numbers not being displayed same as in Excel.

Hello all you experts,

I have data in Excel that has a number field with 3 digits i.e. leading zeros when . When uploaded into Power BI this field shows with only 1 digit. For example If Excel has 000 Power BI displays it as only 0. When Excel has 014 Power BI displays as only 14.

I would like to see all 3 digits being dislayed in my Dashboard...see screenshost attached.

Can someone pls advise a simple DAX formula to fix this issue??

I have tried changing the formatting in Power BI as Text and numbers but nothing works.

Regards.

Hi @Aspi 

Set the Column to Whole Number and set the Format to 000.  Just type 000 into the Format String Area.
