Function for Digital Unit Conversion in Power BI (KB, MB, GB...)

 

Function for Digital Unit Conversion in Power BI (KB, MB, GB...) @SharePointWidgtes.com

While displaying reports it is very common to convert the units. So today I will be displaying the function that can be used in order to convert the Units



Space =
VAR total =
    SUM ( Table1[Used Space] ) + 0
RETURN
    IF (
        total < 1024,
        FORMAT ( total, "#0.0# B" ),
        IF (
            total < POWER ( 220 ),
            FORMAT ( total / POWER ( 210 ), "#0.0# KB" ),
            IF (
                total < POWER ( 230 ),
                FORMAT ( total / POWER ( 220 ), "#0.0# MB" ),
                FORMAT ( total / POWER ( 230 ), "#0.0# GB" )
            )
        )
    )

So if you look into the function the core logic is 


    B --> KB then divide by POWER ( 210 )
    B --> MB then divide by POWER ( 220 )
    B --> GB then divide by POWER ( 230 )
    

And...

    
KB --> B then multiply by POWER ( 210 )
    MB --> B then multiply by POWER ( 220 )
    GB --> B then multiply by POWER ( 230 )

Use the above method in order to convert the units and display them in a friendly text



Happy Coding..!!
