Hi @prashant_ora ,

You could try using the function of FORMAT.

Measure = IF(MAX('Table 1'[Categories]) = "A",FORMAT(MAX('Table 1'[Values]),"0.00"),FORMAT(MAX('Table 1'[Values]),"0.0000"))

Note : The values will be changed to text type after using FORMAT function. If you need to use the values to calculate, I think it is the best way to use the original values not the measure. It will avoid the limitation of data type and ensure the results accurately.
