Value decimal places

I've created a card and and the data label is showing as 2 decimal places. In format - data labels - value decimal places is grayed out. How can I change decimal places to zero? There are no decimal places in the data.

For upcoming training course dates see: Pricing & availability

RE: Value decimal places

Hi Laura,

Thank you for the forum question and thank you for the nice feedback. I am happy to see that you have started using your Power Bi knowledge.

Yes it is strange that the option is greyed out. You can change it. The value you have added to the chart must be formatted as decimal number. If you have no decimals you can change it to Whole number formatting.

If you select the field on the field list and click on the Modelling tab you can change the field formatting to whole number and then the card will show the value without 2 decimals.

Kind regards
