Get a percentage in a calculated field

Hello to all
Help: 😱

The expression: = num (Sum ({<Year = {$ (= Max (Year))}>} Amount),) / num (Sum ({<Year = {$ (= Max (Year) -1)}>} Amount) * (1+ (Budget))) * 100 gives me the result: 54,57820 ...
I want to get 58.78%, but I don't understand how and where to put in the right syntax the expression percentage: '#, ## 0.00%' with the right parentheses.
Can you help me?
Thanks in advance ...
Luigi

Firstly: You are multiplying by 100 which transforms your 0.58 (58%) into 58 (5800%)

Secondly: you only need one NUM() in the whole expression, a NUM() that is wrapping the whole expression. 

Thirdly: if you need help with the fact that you are getting the value 54 but expect the value 58 then you will probably need to provide us with more information.

 

Good luck

Thanks Vegar for the answer.
I was searching something as this:
=num(Sum({<Year={$(=Max(Iear))}>} Revenue),'#.##0,00 €') 
that f.i. give me this: 4.500,00 € 
but in my expression:
=num(Sum({<Year={$(=Max(Year))}>} Revenue),)/num(Sum({<Year={$(=Max(Year)-1)}>} Revenue)*(1+(Budget)), '#,##0.00%')
 the Expressionis OK but the string 
'#,##0.00%'
unfortunately is ininfluent.

Thanks in advance

If the expression is correct then you're  almost there, you just need to get the formatting  correct. 

If it's not working for you like you wrote then you might need to make use of the second and third parameters in the num function (the delimiters). Take a look at the help page for info: https://help.qlik.com/en-US/qlikview/April2019/Subsystems/Client/Content/QV_QlikView/Scripting/Forma...

 

Sometimes it's just as easy to do the number formatting in the chart object properties. You could give that approach a go as well. 

 

Good luck

Hi,

 

try to use num only once:

 

num(
Sum({<Year={$(=Max(Year))}>} Revenue)
/
Sum({<Year={$(=Max(Year)-1)}>} Revenue)*(1+(Budget))

, '#,##0.00%')

It looks like  @StarinieriG  expression should work, but I'm just concerned about your final product (1+(budget))

Are you aware that you only get an value from budget when you have a single value per dimension combination in your chart? 

(1 + (budget)) is equvivalent to (1 + only(budget))
