Measure % not working as expected RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Measure value in source table is 0.015 (data type: real)

    In cube, measure properties are like below

    AggregateFucntion: Sum

    Source: TableName.ColumnName

    DateType: Double

    FormatString:#,##0.00 %;-#,##0.00 %


    Now when I access cube from Excel I see : 1.49999996647238%

    When reporting from SSRS report it shows 1% and correct expected number is 1.5% or 2%

    Any idea, first why and how cube is coming up with that number (1.49999996647238%)?

    Thank you - AK

  • Hi AshokKOjha,

    Thanks for your question.

    In this scenario, I would suggest you to use "Percent" as the FormatString. This will work both from cube browser and EXCEL.
