Round function
Hello, I have a beast mode that calculates a % and I need it to round to 2 decimals.
I'm using the round function as described in the documentation:
CONCAT(ROUND(1(COUNT(DISTINCT `nc_list`) / COUNT(DISTINCT `lot_number`)),2)*100, '%')
However, the result is being rounded to the whole number
I need it to, using the example above, display 97.91 instead of 98
What am I missing in my beast mode?

You may not even need to round using a beast mode calculation. It seems like you are using a textbox chart, however for have you tried using the single value chart? It is a similar chart, and if you look in Chart Properties>General>Decimal Places, you will be able to select how many decimal places you would like to show.

Hi @MartinB
The display options for the field can handle all of this for you.
You can change your beast mode to be:
1(COUNT(DISTINCT `nc_list`) / COUNT(DISTINCT `lot_number`))
Then click on the Beast mode atop your chart to open the menu and select Data Format > Display as and select Percentage with 2 decimal places. You can then also tell it to multiply by 100.

I know i'm late to the party, but @MartinB it's just basic math.
CONCAT(ROUND(1(COUNT(DISTINCT `nc_list`) / COUNT(DISTINCT `lot_number`)),2)*100, '%')
If you have 1/3 ( = .33333333) and you wrap that in round( 2) you'd get .33 so when you multiply by 100 you'd get 33.
if you wanted 33.33 then you do round(4).

@GrantSmith I tried your approach, however the details you explain apply only to the Optional Value

Silly me, this formula made the difference. Thanks @jaeW_at_Onyx
CONCAT(ROUND(1(COUNT(DISTINCT `nc_list`) / COUNT(DISTINCT `lot_number`)),4), '%')
Still, had some trouble when adding strings either at the beginning or the end of the formula pasted above...until this I hit jackpot:
CONCAT('Quality ', CONCAT(ROUND(100*1(COUNT(DISTINCT `nc_list`) / COUNT(DISTINCT `lot_number`)),2), '% FPY'))
Thanks to all, this is the solution I was looking for.
