OBIEE environment has been upgraded to from Show Data As > Percent of Column gives wrong value after applying Custom Format Masks. This was working fine in OBIEE

Expect Show Data As > Percent of Column after applying Custom Format Masks to work in OBIEE

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1) Create a report with an Attribute column and a measure column
2) Create a pivot table view at the compound layout
3) Duplicate measure column and set the below mentioned property for the duplicate layer
Show Data As --> Percent of --> Column

4) Verify that report output is showing the % value.
5) Navigate to the criteria tab and set the column property for the measure column as mentioned below.

Data Format --> Override Default Data format --> Treat Numbers as Custom --> Give Custom numeric format as #,##0;-#,##0;0
Note : The custom numeric format is given to display 0 in place of null in pivot table.
6) Check the report output. Verify that % value is not displayed correctly.
