The Number Formatting in a story cannot apply to a formula based on other cells


  • SAP BusinessObjects Cloud 2017.6.0

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a story and insert a table.
  2. Add a dimension in Rows and some measures in Columns.
  3. Click on a blank cell and input a formula: = B4/10000. The result is 2613.14.
  4. Go to Styling -> Number Formatting and choose Number.
  5. Click the Edit icon and change the value of Decimal Places to 4.
  6. Click OK and the result is still 2613.14.


The decimal place as well as unit like millions are not respected on formula or reference custom cells.
