## How do I show fixed number of digits on a card

Hello,

My client asked if the card can show 3 digits no matter what the numbers are.

For example, for the cards, the numbers are showing up with automatic unit display: 4M, 133K, 3000, 100, etc.

The client asked if I can make the card always show 3 significant digits and I don't know how to do it.

He is expecting for 4M number in the card, it should show 4.XXM now but for 133K, it should stay the same without any decimal number.

Is there a way for me to achieve what is being asked over here?

Hey @yjlee1212 ,

you can check the numbers and then return a different value with the FORMAT string.

A while ago I wrote a blog article how you can do a automatic scaling (give back as Billion, Million, Thousand or without any scaling):

Dynamic scaling of a measure in Power BI with DAX - What the fact.bi

The mechanism should be the same for you, something like this should work for you:

``````SUM Sales dynamic =
VAR _SumSales = SUM( FactInternetSales[SalesAmount] )
VAR _FormattedSales = SWITCH(
TRUE(),
_SumSales < 1000000, FORMAT( _SumSales, "000, K" ),
_SumSales < 10000000, FORMAT( _SumSales, " 0 , , .00 Mil" ),
_SumSales
)

RETURN
_FormattedSales``````

If you need any help please let me know.
