## Remove "K" but keep data in thousands

Good Day,

I want to know if it is possible to display data in thousands, but without the "K" at the end of the data. We know our reporting is in '000s, we just need the values and the K at the end creates unnecessary clutter.

Thanks!

Write a measure that divides the numbers by 1000

Create a measure that equals the value e.g.

Commission (£'000) = [Commission (£)]
Then above the DAX formula bar change the Format from General to a formating mask like
#,#,.;-#,#,.;"-"
This returns the number formatted with a thousands "," seperator, in thousands without decimals.
#, is the thousands "," seperator .
#,.; is the in thousands ",", without decimals ".;".
Then again for negative values.
"-" defines how 0 are presented.

Hi @DieLem

For another option, you could create a calculated column by SUBSTITUTE like below, then change the data type to be whole number.

`Column = SUBSTITUTE('Table2'[value2],"K","")`

The output is below.

That's not the ideal solution also due to rounding. I was using a /1000 measure and now I'm struggling with not correct results. Mathematically it doesn't make sense but I believe it's a limitation of Power BI.

i have similar issue, & if I  create a measure and divide it by 1000.

In visuals it looks good, however when the end user extract the data into excel, they want to see the exact number that means not the one which is divided by 1000.

is it possible?
