Hi All,

I wish I could understand how the formatting of numeric values works in SSRS.

I have a numeric value for example 21.1254045578 and I need to display this as 21.12%. Can someone please tell me how I can do this?

Thanks.

Try this in expression

Round(21.1254045578,2)& "%"

Results is as
= 21.13%

Hopefully this is close enough for you Smile

Or how about this?
Right click the field, select Properties- Format Tab, put P2 in the format code field.
Here are some links to microsoft cheat sheets.

• Custom Numeric Format Strings [ http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa719871(printer).aspx ]

You really should have posted this in a new thread rather than posting it at the end of a 2 year old thread.

In the properties for the text box (not the Text Box Properties dialog box, but the regular advanced properties for the textbox) you will find a Number Format property. Put ###-##-#### into that property and you should be good to go.
