Conditional formatting background_empty cells

Hi,

Need help with conditional formatting. I have a table with activities and statuses (closed/open). So I added this measure (called Measure) but it gives value 2 to blank cells as well:

 

Measure =
SWITCH(MAX([Table]),
"Closed",2,
"Open",1
)
 
                                                                                                   Now

So how do I change the Measure so that it leaves blank cells without value and they thefore not colored at all:       
                                                                                                     To be

Hi, @Alex_0201 

 

According to your description, I think you can create a measure, It only judge the two states of open and closed.

like this:

Measure = IF(MAX('Table'[Status])="open","Red",IF(MAX('Table'[Status])="closed","Green"))//Omit blank()

Then use it in condifitional formatting.

@Alex_0201 , Blank cell can not be colored

 

Try this

color measure =

var _1 = coalesce(MAX([Table]), "Closed")

return

SWITCH(_1,
"Closed","Green"
"Open","Red"

)

 

Use this in conditional formatting using field value option

@amitchandak, thanks! but I need this measure as an input in conditional formatting for background color of cells thus the values 1 and 2. And with your modification I can not choose the measure in conditional formatting anymore.
