Small values with power change format after publish to PowerBi

Hello everyone,

I have small, but really annoying problem: when creating report in PowerBi Desktop I have w column with really small values and I change it's format to be a decimal number (e.g. 0,00000000001) ane it looks like it in report but after publishing it to PowerBi Service it goes back to scientific format (1,00000000000e-11).

 

Is there any way to change format to decimal in PowerBi Service?

@mikolaj,

There is no option to change format in Power BI Service, regarding to this issue, please submit an idea in Power BI ideas forum.

And some hacks how to handle it or there is nothing? 😞

@mikolaj

The only method that I can think of is to create an extra column for the decimal column in Power BI Desktop and format its data type to Text.
