Seeking help for Dynamic number formatting in PowerBi

Hi All, 

 

I was hoping someone can help me use some dynamic formatting for vlaues in PowerBi. I need a solution to provide a K for values, such as 141K and M for values, such as 1.23M. This can be done in Excel using 

[>=1000000] #,##0.00,,"m";[<1000000] #,##0.0,"k";General

but is there a way to impliment this into PowerBi? 

 

Appreciate any ideas 🙂

Hi  @DanielG123 ,

I created a sample pbix file(see attachment) for you, please check whether that is what you want. You can create a calculated column as below:

Column = 
IF (
    [Value] >= 1000000,
    FORMAT ( DIVIDE ( [Value], 1000000 ), "0.00M" ),
    IF (
        [Value] >= 1000
            && [Value] < 1000000,
        FORMAT ( DIVIDE ( [Value], 1000 ), "0.00K" ),
        FORMAT ( [Value], "0.00" )
    )
)

If the above one can't help you get the desired result, please provide some sample data in your tables (exclude sensitive data) with Text format and your expected result with backend logic and special examples. It is better if you can share a simplified pbix file. You can refer the following link to upload the file to the community. Thank you.

@DanielG123 , You have try a measure like

 

SWITCH ( TRUE() ,
[M1] >= 1000000000 , CONCATENATE("$", FORMAT ([M1]/1000000000, "#,###.0") & "bn") ,
[M1] >= 1000000, CONCATENATE("$", FORMAT (COALESCE([M1], 0)/1000000, "#,###.0" )& "M") ,
[M1] >= 1000, CONCATENATE("$", FORMAT (COALESCE([M1], 0)/1000000, "#,###.0" )& "K") ,
CONCATENATE("$", FORMAT (COALESCE([M1], 0) , "#,###.0")
))

Hi, 

 

So where you have the [M1] in the formula, i am replacing that with my column name. However it will not find the column. It is a whole number column, do i need to put it in a calculated field?

Hi @amitchandak

 

I will try this and let you know if it works. The values are not currencies, they are just volume figures for the amount of users etc. 

 

Will come back here if it works to let you know 🙂 

 

Thanks
