When attempting to submit a FSG report by Report Manager and using a Generic FSG Template in R12 instance then % symbol not available for negative figures. It still works for positive figures as for example: "29 (%".
User noticed that, 11i is generating .xls file. while R12 generates .xlsm file.

For the same FSG report, similar Submission/Publishing Parameters, in R11i the % symbol is shown on negative figures as for example: "-3) (%" but positive figures are on black and without % symbol.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Log into Report Manager 

2. Navigate to Financial Report Submission 

3. Submit the FSG report
