    Parameter number format

    kari.cunov

      Hi -

      I'm wondering if it's possible to dynamically change the number format on a parameter so that depending on what is selected in the parameter a different number format would be applied to the viz? I have attached a sample workbook that shows an example of what I'm trying to do. I created a Parameter called SELECT METRIC and a Calculated Field called 'Metric'. I am displaying 'Metric' in my table and the Parameter is working as expected, except the format of the Metric displayed doesn't change when I change which 'Metric' I want displayed in the SHOW METRIC filter. I know that I can change the number format of my variable 'Metric', but it's not dynamic, it would apply to all of the options. I would like Sales to be displayed as a currency and Order Quantity as a numeric. Is there a way to do this?

       

      Thank you for your help!
