Thank you for writing to us.
We noticed that you are using the percentofcolumn aggregation. For percent aggregations, Flexmonster adds the percent (%) symbol automatically.
Here is a JSFiddle example:
You can also define a default number formatting rule for all measures. At the same time, you can format the values of certain measures by setting a specific number formatting rule.
Please note that for percent aggregations, the percent symbol position isn’t affected by number formatting rules.
If you need to position the percent symbol differently for percent aggregations, a possible solution is to create a calculated value.
Here is an example illustrating this approach:
Please let us know if this helps. If any additional questions arise, feel free to reach out.
