I want to be able to show GigaBytes (GB) instead of Billion (bn)

This seems like a relatively simple fix, and many people would benefit from it. My customers are also confused and get a bad taste in their mouth about Power BI when they see this kind of limitation.

This is a frustrating limitation.

Scales like kilo, Mega, and Giga (k, M, G resp.) are common too, and so being able to set the appropriate abbreviation in charts and cards is really useful to have those values scale logically.

My client uses this format:
1,000 = 1M
1,000,000 = 1MM

It would clarify things to be able to customize this.

Where I live, The Netherlands, we're used that 1.000.000.000 is 'miljard' and 1.000.000.000.000 is a 'biljoen'. So the abbreviation bn is just plain confusing for us. K, mln., mld. and bln. are used over here as abbreviations.

T

To clarify - Currently, I have a report which displays values both in the millions and in the billions, and the Display Units are set to auto on both cards and a bar chart. However, the unit abbreviations displayed are :
bn = billions

M = millions

The client would prefer to see a 'B' used to represent billions

We would like a way to customize these display units.
