Chart number formatting

Recommended Posts

reynir    0

I have a database based on Icelandic localization with the decimal as comma and thousands separator as dot.


The numbers are formatted to use system settings.


I have a column chart to show percentage of defects. I.e I have in a sample count of items =  40. Then I have defects like brown heads = 2. Calculating ratio of brown heads gives me 2/40 = 0.05. When I format it on a layout to show 5,0 percent. To have it in percentage I multiply by 100. When I format it on a layout it shows 5,0 percent. When I show the same number on a column chart it shows 5,0


When I change the localization of the system to USA or Canada system settings and insert the same data with decimal separator as dot and thousands separator as dot the same information show up as 50.0 on the column chart !!!
