AO Format dissapearing after RESET DATASOURCE

Hi All

Version : AO 2.3

I have set %format for one of my report column in AO, so that it displays values as "10%"

However, when I click on "Refresh DataSource" to incorporate the new change in AO, the AO formal also disspears.

Is there any option, whereby I can avoid this? Any macro coding by which I can save a particular format reset of datasource?

    Hi - before looking at a work-around, have you applied the SP released last week for 2.3? There was also a patch released on July 15th

    Hi,

    please confirm my guess. You add a new Column via the function new cell and formatet this Excel cell format with a perentage value and the format change after refresh not like the header says after reset?

    When I add a value to a New Cell (Table Design) in AO 2.3 the value disappears as soon as I click refresh data source.

    I think there must be an issue in the actual version. I know it worked before.

    I just found a little trick.

    Add a new cell to your crosstab via Table Design. Write in the cell =SomeOtherField. In the SomeOtherField you write 0,1

    Then select the cell you added to the crosstab and create a new style (Format >> Format Styles). In this new Style you select as number format percentage.

    I hope the screenshot make clear what I mean. If not, feel free to ask
