I am trying to turn the Needs Approval to yellow. There is numbers in the fields at times as well but I am not sure of a measure that can decipher the two.

Hi @Rippey ,


Please take a look at the below document. You may use conditional formatting if the visual is supported.

@Rippey , if it is a table you can do using the color measure. But not in the case of the matrix .


color =
switch ( true(),
FIRSTNONBLANK('Table'[commodity],"NA") ="commodity1" && sum('Table'[Value]) >500,"lightgreen",
FIRSTNONBLANK('Table'[commodity],"NA") ="commodity2" && sum('Table'[Value]) >1000,"lightgreen",
// Add more conditions


You need to select "field value" option in conditional formatting and use this measure

Hi @Rippey  whats the visual you using? and you mean "Needs Approval" as a word to color as yellow or the numbers correspondings to Needs Approval to Yellow?


Conditional Formatting > Font Color enable and you can set some rules to show the fields as colored.


Hope this helps.
