Visio Visual Value Field is blank when a format string is specified for a Calculation Item

When we use a Visio visual in Power BI desktop, the value filed which we drag to the value field section does not get updated in the Visio Visual as shown below. We have noticed that this happens if a format string is specified in a calculation item of a calculation group. When the format string expression is removed from the calculation item, the Vision Visual displays the value field properly. This happens even if the calculation group is not used in the report page.

Hi :

According to my research in the ICM, it seems that there is a similar issue, here’s the ICM ID: 234485284


In the latest updated information from PG, the development team has found the root cause and try to assign it to someone from the team.


I will update here once I get any further information.


Thank you very much!
