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).

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.
