Show a percentage from Sharepoint list

Hi, I have a calculated column (CompletionScore) in a sharepoint list that is formated as a number, to zero decimal places, and as a percentage.

 

I want to show it in Powerapp. I have tried:

Text=ThisItem.CompletionScore

 

but i just get 1.0000000000000 or 0.8666666666666

 

I have also tried:

Text=text(ThisItem.CompletionScore,"0%")

and have played around with the calculated column, changing it to a text formart, and also using Round, but i'm going in circles. I have control over the Sharepoint list and the calculatoin, so can change it if necessary.

 

Any help?

Thanks.

Re: Show a percentage from Sharepoint list

I revisted this problem this morning, and have found a solution:

 

Concatenate(Text(Round(Value(ThisItem.CompletionScore)*100,0),"[$-en-US]0"),"%")

 

It seems rather clunky, but it works. 

 

Thought I'd post in case someone else gets stuck like me.

Re: Show a percentage from Sharepoint list

Where did you put that formula - it doesn't seem to work in my "Format" field?

Re: Show a percentage from Sharepoint list

I didn´t understand where to insert the code. I have the same problem (see pic). I uploaded data from an excel table, and one of my columns have a percentage.

 

In the excel document the column is formated as percentage. But when i upload to the Powerapp, that specific column shows only decimals.Full tableFull tableLeft (powerapp) is the value in decimal, uploaded from the right (excel) in percentage.Left (powerapp) is the value in decimal, uploaded from the right (excel) in percentage.

Re: Show a percentage from Sharepoint list

In the Text field of the DataCardValue set it equal to:

Text(Value(Parent.Default*100),"[$-en-US]0%")

 

That worked for me. I hope it works for you too!

Re: Show a percentage from Sharepoint list

Does anyone know why this happens? 

 

I have a slightly different scenario whereby I have a number field in SharePoint which has a minimum & maximum value (0-100 respectively); this is then being displayed as a percentage with no decimal places. When a user attemps to submit a value (i.e. 20) through PowerApps, the form submission fails because it expects a value between 0-1?

 

Does anyone know why this is, and how to workaround this particularly strange issue? Does using the "display as percentage" option in SharePoint mean that the value has to be a decimal value between 0 and 1?

Re: Show a percentage from Sharepoint list

Found answer at StackExchange

 

Update below properties for the DataCard (assuming name of field is "Numbers"):

  1. 'Default' field to 'ThisItem.Numbers*100'
  2. 'Update' field to 'Value(DataCardValue3.Text/100)' --- DataCardValue3 in my case
