Formatting issue with dimension value "others"

Hey guys,

I am experiencing a strange behaviour by QlikView.

In order to show only the higher value shares in a pie chart, I set the lower limit in the "Presentation" tab of the pie chart to 0.1.

So as I wanted, QV aggregates the shares of <10% to the value "others".

But exactly for this artificial value "others", the standard expression format seems to be ignored...

This was the format before the change:


This is what I get when I change the lower limit of the presentation:


Note that only the value "Others" has a different format, the other values are still fine!

In the "Number" tab of the pie chart I have selected "Expression default".

This is my expression with the number format:

num(     count(          {$<UWY = {   $(=max(UWY))      }  > }   distinct VTGNR         )          /      count (          {$<UWY = {   $(=max(UWY))      }  > }   total distinct VTGNR          ) , '#'&chr(39)&'##0.0%', '.' , chr(39))

Please note:

Is is not an option for me to override the expression default by any other setting in the "Number" tab, because I change the used expression by a variable and sometimes different number formats apply, which are only defined by the expression itself, controlled by variables.

I hope I made my problem clear and easy to grasp.

Thanks in advance for any help!
