Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

OBIEE 12c provides a new feature 'Scale for % (x 100)' for percentage data.

Select this box enables to multiple the data by 100 to display it as a percentage.
For example, suppose that you had a column that contained the ratio 0.0326 (meaning 3.26 percent). Selecting this box multiples the ratio 0.0326 by 100 to display 3.26% (rather than 0.0326%).

This feature works as expected when displaying data in Analyses (Web User Interface).
However, when displaying OBIEE data in Excel using Smart View, the data is not multiplied by 100 in spite of being selected the option.
