£ & % Symbols

I have an app drawing data from a PowerQuery table, in both the original table and the PowerQuery the data is correctly formatted as £ and as %, however, when it pulls through to the app it's in decimal. Any idea how I get the symbols back and format the number accordingly (see attached).

Hi @stumac_31,

Based on the issue that you provided, I think the Text function could achieve your needs. 

If you want to include the symbol % behind the value, please take a try with the following formula:

Text(Value(ThisItem.'Days_spent_(_x0025_)')*100,"[$-en-US]###.00%")

If you want to include the symbol £  in front of the value, please take a try with the following formula:

Text(Value(ThisItem.'Budget_spent_(£)'),"[$-en-US]£ ##0.00")

More details about Text function, please check the following article:

Hi @stumac_31,

For the first formula if .## is used instead of .00, 1.70 will  appear as 1.7  if .00 is used as in the example, it forces the second 0 placeholder and appears as 1.70

Text(ThisItem.Yournumber,"£###.00")
Value(ThisItem.Yournumber*100,"###%"

 

Thank you very much @Drrickryp, got it rounding, but anyway to include the symbol £ in front, and % behind?

Here are my formulas....

 

%

RoundDown(Value(ThisItem.'Days_spent_(_x0025_)'*100,"###%"),1)

 

£

Text(ThisItem.'Budget_spent_(£)',"[$-en-US]£####.00")

 

Attached screenshot

%

Text(ThisItem.OData__OldID/Quantity*100,"###%")

£

Text(RoundDown(ThisItem.Quantity/OData__OldID,2),"[$-en-US]£###.00")

I used Quantity/OData__OldID to just get a fraction to work with.

What am I inserting here?

OData_OldID? Just dropping it in like below doesn't work....

 

£

Text(ThisItem.OData__OldID/'Budget_spent_(£)',"[$-en-US]£####.00")

 

%

RoundDown(Value(ThisItem.OData__OldID/'Days_spent_(_x0025_)'*100,"###%"),1)

Hi @stumac_31,

Sorry for the confusion.  OData_OldID and Quantity were two numeric fields already in my database.  I arbitrarily used them to create a fraction that I could format to test whether my suggestions worked. Just replace 

ThisItem.Quantity/OData__OldID 

with the data value in your app.  

I don't have anything to divide....
