Text comparison in power Bi

test measure = SWITCH(TRUE() ,"9.9" >= "10.5" , "#00AA00" ,"9.9" < "9.5","#FF1E00", "#BFA416" )

 

For the above dax it will return #00AA00 which is not same as per number comparison  .How power bi compare text values?

Hi @Anonymous,

 

In Power BI, it will compare one by one starting from the first character of the string.

For example, "9.9" vs "10.5", Power BI judges that they are strings. And the first character "9" of "9.9" is larger than the first character "1" of "10.5", so "9.9">"10.5" is true.

@Anonymous , In double quote, it will be a string. Try like

test measure = SWITCH(TRUE() ,9.9 >= 10.5 , "#00AA00" ,9.9 < 9.5,"#FF1E00", "#BFA416" )

maybe you can try this

test measure = SWITCH(TRUE() ,VALUE("9.9") >= value("10.5") , "#00AA00" ,value("9.9" )< value("9.5"),"#FF1E00", "#BFA416" )
