Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 20 and create some fast
    rendered pivot tables with percent values displayed with format
    0 decimal values. Some percent values are below 1% and are
    displayed as 0% on the table. The exact value of the cell is
    displayed in the background e.g. as .1234%
    The you export these tables with output export as Excel XLS
    file. However, when you open the exported file you see for the
    cells with the 0% a % percent sign only in the cell but not 0%.
    However, this is only a cosmetic issue because the exact cell
    value is in the background of the exported cell too.
    
    This was reported to IBM SPSS Development. As a workaround
    create the same table agian but as full rendered legacy table
    (set tablerender = full). When you export this full rendered
    table to Excel cells with percentages <1% are displayed as 0%
    instead of %.
