Cannot set a percentage format in my data in table or Numeric point Indicator


I am trying to build a variance percentage KPI indicator between last year sales and this year sales in my report using a calculated measure. The problem is that when I go to format this number. The percentage format is grayed and I cannot set any decimals or percentage symbol.

Can you please suggest any ways to resolve this?

Many thanks.

    Hello Marios,

    Have you changed the scale in formatting options? You can do it by Format.

    By default, the checkbox "Use unit of underlying measures" is activated. In this case you can not select "Percentage".

    After disabling this option, you are able to select the scale "Percentage".
