## Need help with the Format Conversion

Hello Everyone,

Is there any possibility to convert the "0.00%" format to a number format.

Since by using VALUE() function we can convert the "0" or "0,000" format to a number format.

Would really appreciate the help in this matter.

Thanks & Regards,

Harsh

@harjoshi1 , just check % sign is check (In dark grey when check), then you can revert it. else you have create a new column divide by 100

New Column = [Percent]/100 //number data type

## Re: Need help with the Format Conversion

Hello Amit,

I've written a DAX and below is the example of my DAX -

RLU Act Vs Bud = VAR Currentitem = SELECTEDVALUE(RLUKeyMeasures[Retirement Living Unit]) RETURN SWITCH(TRUE(), CurrentItem = “Occupancy” , FORMAT([RLU Act Occupancy%]-[RLU Bud Occupancy%], “0.0%”), CurrentItem = “Vacant Units”, VALUE(FORMAT([RLU Act Vacant Units] -1+[RLU Bud Vacant Units], “0”)), CurrentItem = “Vacant units recurrent charges”, VALUE(FORMAT([RLU Act Vacant Units Recurrent charges] -1+[RLU Bud Vacant Units Recurrent charges], “0,000”)), BLANK())

In this I've used VALUE() Function in order to convert the format of "0" or "0,000" but not able convert the "0.00%" since it throws back the back stating that it cannot the "XX.XX%" type text to the number.

Here's the screen shot attached for the reference.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi @harjoshi1 ,

The principle is that data in a column needs to be in the same data format.

Try to delete value function.

VALUE

Custom numeric formats for the FORMAT function
