Percentage Measures
Silver Member
If a metric is a percentage, at the very top level it displays with the percentage sign - as long as you include the percentage sign in the display format in measure metadata. As the measure is defined as a percentage – the display format should automatically be shown as a percentage.
As soon as you drill down a level - the percent sign disappears - but the data is not reformatted. So, at the top level the measure will show as 1.5%. When you drill down the measure shows as 1.5. These numbers are not equivalent. 1.5% is equivalent to .015.

Is there a way to make the drill down respect the formatting?

You're right... the measure detail report doesn't carry the designated format down. So even though it's trying to say 1.5% it's dropping the pct sign. That is a known issue and one we're fixing in the next release.
