Restrict auto data label values only up to million



I am having some strange behaviour due to auto data label. Some chart shows values in millions and some in billions which doesn't make much sense as values are similar in both charts and also of same size.

Please refer to the image below: the 1st item in left visual has a value of 205 mn, and the 1st item in right visual has a value of 196 mn. These are very close to each other, so why the left visual is not showing on millions. 

Also, it looks wierd to see everything as 0.00 bn. If I make some selection, then it's possible that the values will come down in thousands, and so I'd like to retain thousands as well and not only select millions in format in Data Label.


So, is there a way in power bi that we can say that data label should be auto, but only up to millions. Discard billions and trillions.


Please help.

@vvibhakar , You can try custom formatting, but that will make it as text.

Auto is usually a better option

Yes I tried custom, but didn't work effectively.
