## Conditionnal formatting cells from table

Hi,

I am thinking on how to get my cells formatted based on calculations but can't find a solution currently. Don't know whether to use the IF or SWITCH function for it as SWITCH only seem to apply on created measures.

The table I have, assume it is called (Table[])

Condittional formatting I want should apply to Delivery Order or Shipment No and colours I want to use are Orange, Green, Red or no colour (Black):

If (Table.[IOD Date]) <= (Table.[Arrival Date]) And (Table.[status]) = "IOD" ; Green
If (Table.[Arrival Date]) = Today and (Table.[IOD Date]) = Blank ; Orange
If (Table.[Arrival Date]) < Today And (Table.[Status]) = "Ship" ; Red

If (Table.[IOD Date]) > (Table.[Arrival Date])  And (Table.[Status]) = "IOD" ; Red

Else no colour (Black).

Who could help me out? @amitchandak maybe?

Kind Regards,

Sofiën

Solved it by creating a column like below and doing conditionnal formatting based on numbers 1 till 5.

_Colour =
IF(AND(G002_KDE_BI_Report[_IODDate] <= G002_KDE_BI_Report[_ArrivalDate], G002_KDE_BI_Report[_Bin] = "IOD received"), 1 ,
IF(AND(G002_KDE_BI_Report[_ArrivalDate] = TODAY(), G002_KDE_BI_Report[_IODDate] = BLANK()), 2,
IF(AND(G002_KDE_BI_Report[_ArrivalDate] < TODAY(), G002_KDE_BI_Report[_Bin] = "Shipped"), 3 ,
IF(AND(G002_KDE_BI_Report[_IODDate] > G002_KDE_BI_Report[_ArrivalDate], G002_KDE_BI_Report[_Bin] = "IOD received"), 4 , 5)
)))

Hi @Anonymous ,

Pls refer the below:

``Rule = SWITCH(MAX('Table'[type]),"A","Green","B","Red","C","Yellow")``

Then

Final output:(color according measure rule)

Best Regards

There is an easier way to do Conditional Formatting. You can achieve this without a measure as well. Below are the steps –

Click on the Down Arrow in front of the Column Name under Values Tab and Select Conditional Formatting > Background Color

A new Background Color window will pop up – fill all the details, select the colors you want and click on OK.

That’s it, the colors will show up on your chart –

Let me know this works for you.

I know you can do it like this as well, but this won't work for me as my colours are based on calculations which I mentioned above. In the screen you shared you need to select Field Value after selected Conditionnal Formatting and then within Field Value enter the measure with SWITCH function probably.

Kind Regards,
