Re: Color row based on date condition

There is conditional formatting based on column values but not by the entire row.

Re: Color row based on date condition

Thank you for your reply,

 

Ok, if cannot color by 1 row, could i apply to font color or background color in one coloum.

Let say for example, i have 2 coloums, SO number and Closing date.


If date in Closing date is passed, font or background color will color in red.

If date in Closing date is current date or upcoming date, it will color in blue.

The scenario example as below:

 

Can it be apply in report visualization?

 

SO Number

Closing Date

87384374

01/04/2017

98972777

03/04/2017

87293839

20/04/2017

83749848

01/05/2017


Appreciate if you could help me to solve this problem.

Thanks!

Hi @melina,

Currently, you are only able to specify customized cell background colors based on cell values as described in this article.

The feature that change color of column values based on condition in other column is not supported, please vote up this idea: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/16891147-dynamic-conditional-form... .

Thanks,

How about using MDX?

Hi @melina,

Do you mean DAX? If so, we are not able to achieve your requirement using DAX.

A workaround is to create a new column using the following DAX, and then create a bar chart to display SO number in different color.
Column = IF(Table3[Closing Date]>=TODAY(),"Green","Red")
