conditional formatting

Hi

 

I have the below table, the number of students is a count of the students ID and the % of total is the students ID but as a percentage of the row total. I want to format the background colour but just for the % of total column which are RED. I want to coulor the background Red if it is over 10%, Amber if it is 3-9% and Green if under 3%. Is there a way to do this?, thanks for any help

Hi, @WJ876400 

According to your description and sample picture, you want to set the conditional format for the [% of Total] for the color Red, right?

You can try my steps:

This is the test data I created according to your sample picture:

  1. Create these measures:
Number of students =

COUNTX(FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),[ID]=MAX('Table'[ID])),[ID])
% of Total =

var _total=COUNTX(ALL('Table'),[ID])

return

DIVIDE([Number of students],_total )
Color format =

SWITCH(

    TRUE(),

    [% of Total]>0.1,"Red",

    [% of Total]<=0.1&&[% of Total]>=0.03,"Orange",

    [% of Total]<0.03,"Green"

)
  1. I created a Matrix and place these columns and measures, then open the conditional format like this:

v-robertq-msft_1-1613113901365.png

v-robertq-msft_2-1613113901373.png

 

And you can get what you want, like this:

v-robertq-msft_3-1613113901379.png

 

You can download my test pbix file here

 

If this result is not what you want, you can post some sample data(without sensitive data) and your expected result.
