Yamaha 1 25
Total motorcycle 4 100 I really hope if there’s anyone can help me….thank you.

You should do that kind of formatting at the front end. You can easily concatenate the ‘%’ at the report layer. ***********************

Am not sure what reporting tool you are using but you should be able to concatenate values at the report layer. ***********************

i’m using analysis services and sql server the example that i gave earlier, there’s a measure called far as i know, we can’t insert 2 same measure in the data field area in the pivot for ur info, i’ve created a calculated members called Amount2 to get the Amount value (which means now i’ve exactly 2 same data but with different name) and then insert it in the data field area…after that i used the field setting wizard to convert the value to become %…i’m i doing the right thing?
