Goal

How can we convert a decimal to a percentage for display in a BI Publisher Chart ?

The data model on which the report is based includes a decimal representation of the percentage, e.g. Data Type is double and the value is of the form -- 0.45, 0.56 for 45% and 56% respectively.

When displaying this column in a Data Table it is possible to use the Data Format option and this automatically converts the decimal into a percentage but this same option is not available when working with a Chart in a BI Publisher layout. For this reason the chart continues to show the column as a decimal.
