Question

How are percentage values displayed in OfficeConnect?

Answer

Percentage values in Adaptive Insights will by default be pulled into OfficeConnect as a decimal. This decimal is further impacted by the Office Connect files rounding settings. For example, if the rounding setting for the book is "In Thousands", 25.25% would be pulled in as 0.0002525. To correct for this, there are two options.

1. Set the books rounding to "No rounding".

  1. Book Properties > Format > No rounding (the default is thousands).
  2. Set the cell to display as a percentage.

2. Set those particular cells that are percentages in Adaptive Insights to ignore the OfficeConnect workbooks rounding settings.

1. Highlight the cells that should not be rounded.

2. Select the Office Connect tab in the ribbon > Row/Column/Cell Properties > Suppress Rounding (Do Not Round Amounts).

3. Use excel's native functionality to set the cells to percentage values.

4. Refresh.
