conditional format

Hi,

 

I need apply for Conditioal Formatting function to a column in a table.  Looks like need to appy for aggregation funciton first before letting me do that. For example "Maximum"  If choose Maximun, the column name will change to "Max of Column Name". How to rename this column name and remove "Max of" ?

Re: conditional format

@ask,

 

If you select different aggregation for your field, the column name will change automatically. And there is no such a option for us to delete the prefix of the column. To work around this issue, you can create another measure to aggregate your field.

  1. Create a table like
    Capture.PNG
  2. Add this aggregation to a slicer.
  3. Create a measure in original table.
    Measure =
    var SelectedItem = MAX(Table2[Aggregation])
    var result = IF(SelectedItem="Sum",SUM(Table1[Amount]),IF(SelectedItem="Max",MAX(Table1[Amount]),IF(SelectedItem="Min",MIN(Table1[Amount]),AVERAGE(Table1[Amount]))))
    return result

Result
Capture1.PNGCapture2.PNG

Re: conditional format

@ask,

 

Max of Amount and Min of Amount are the default column name when you use Max and Min aggregation. We cannot remove it. As my workaournd, we need to create a measue instead of the column.
