I have a number 67.75, with the format mask "###,###,##0.00%". I would expect 67.75%, however I am getting 6775.00%

I have the mask because I need comma's for thousand separator, and always 2 decimal places with the percentage sign.

Why isn't this working?

I have changed my number to be a proper percentage, with the format mask "###,###,##0.00%"

I understand this means always show 2 decimal places and 1 integer number.

However percentages of 90.10% are being shown as 90.1%

Hi Marc,

The problem with the percentage happens because the percentage sign is a special formatting symbol, as explained here. To escape it, you can prefix it with a double backslash. With this change applied, your format string works as expected and 90.10 is shown as "90.10%" which, if I understand correctly, is the needed result:

Hi Tsvetina

Thank you! I must have missed that part of the documentation. Cheers!
