Small values with power change format after publish to PowerBi

Hello everyone,

I have small, but really annoying problem: when creating report in PowerBi Desktop I have w column with really small values and I change it's format to be a decimal number (e.g. 0,00000000001) ane it looks like it in report but after publishing it to PowerBi Service it goes back to scientific format (1,00000000000e-11).

 

Is there any way to change format to decimal in PowerBi Service?

@mikolaj

The only method that I can think of is to create an extra column for the decimal column in Power BI Desktop and format its data type to Text.
