Hi @Anonymous ,

I think you are trying on enabled it on measure fields, right?
Measure formula is impossible to apply aggregation functions, I'd like to suggest you use other field values as condition to formatting measure result(field value mode) or setting static values as conditions on 'rule' mode.

Conditional formatting in tables#color formatting by field value

@v-shex-msft  I do not understand sorry. Now I created a measure to switch on color:

Color LE = switch(True();'Measures Delta'[∆ FY] >= 0; "#B20000";'Measures Delta'[∆ FY]< 0 ; "#FFC04C") 
 

When I use this as conditional formatting, format by field value on the measure in my table. It does not work. 

 

I have other reports that work fine with this kind of using measures to show an icon e.g.:
