Conditional Formatting Matrix Columns

Hello,

 

I am trying to figure out if there is a way to use conditional formatting to go on the basis of the column, rather than the entirety of the matrix.

 

For example, when I use the Lowest value to Highest value format, it will compare the values of the whole table, when I’d like the conditional formatting to compare lowest to highest of only the values in columns.

 

Thank You for your help,

Re: Conditional Formatting Matrix Columns

@PRodriguez,

Conditional formatting applies to a range of values in a single column of your original table, when you create a Matrix visual using fields of the original table, all values come from this single column,  thus conditional formatting goes on the entirety of the Matrix.

Re: Conditional Formatting Matrix Columns

I got around this by using the ALLEXCEPT() function a measure. This function will ignore all filters but one, so if you choose the column value as the exception you can use conditional formatting on a column basis.
