Hi, @Anonymous 

 

Based on your description, the easiest way is using the format feature in 'Modeling' ribbon. As a workaround, you may try the following steps.

 

Here is my example.

Table:

FormatTable:

b2.png

 

Then you may create a measure as below.

 

FormatSales = 
var _currentformat = SELECTEDVALUE(FormatTable[Format])

return 
IF(
    OR(_currentformat = "CPC",_currentformat = "CTR"),
    MAX('Table'[Sales])/100&"%",
    "$"&MAX('Table'[Sales])
)

 

 

Result:
