conditional background color

Hi,

I have a field (data type text) called test that has some rows with Y and other empty

I need to color the rows in a table with yellow color  if the field test is Y and white if it's empty.

I don't need to show the field test on the table.

How can I do?

@Giada_Togliatti , you can create a color measure and use that after selecting field option

example

color =
switch ( true(),
FIRSTNONBLANK(Table[commodity],"NA") ="commodity1" && sum(Table[Value]) >500,"lightgreen",
FIRSTNONBLANK(Table[commodity],"NA") ="commodity2" && sum(Table[Value]) >1000,"lightgreen",
/// Add more conditions
"red"
)

HI  @Giada_Togliatti 

You could create a simple measure as below:

Measure = IF(CALCULATE(MAX('Table'[test]))="Y",1,2)

Then do conditional formatting as below:

and for "I don't need to show the field test on the table."

you'd better show it(test field) in the table visual. if one value has "Y" and empty together, how do you color it?

for example:

6.JPG

 

In my simple sample, D has "Y" and empty in test, if you don't drag test in the table visual.

Result:

7.JPG

and here is my sample pbix file, please try it.

Lin

Change the values of the "Y / Blank" to "1 / 0" then apply a conditional formatting on each column you want formatted.
Use the "based on field" together with format by rules.
