How to modify my expression to force Vari % return as % ?

Hi All

@VijayP have share with me Advanced Card , This Vis is must better then PBI Card Visulisation.

Because it can display more information in one card. 

 

When i try to use the below expression for display % Vari :-

 

_Vari_%_REV = if(isblank( divide(
[_YTD REV]
-
[_LYTD REV]
,
[_LYTD REV]
)),1, divide(
[_YTD REV]
-
[_LYTD REV]
,
[_LYTD REV]
))
 
Can some one share how to modify the above to force it display as %  ? Now it display as 12 decimal point.

Select your measure in the Fields panel and then click on the % sign to format it as percent in the ribbon.  Also, you should write that measure using a variable to keep it from calculating twice each time.

 

_Vari_%_REV =
VAR vResult =
    DIVIDE (
        [_YTD REV] - [_LYTD REV],
        [_LYTD REV]
    )
RETURN
    IF (
        ISBLANK ( vResult ),
        1,
        vResult
    )
