## Background color rules for table cells not working

Desktop vs July 2022

Brief description:  Cell elements background color does not cut off color at the right boundary when using percentages, which are specificied in the settings as whole numbers > 0 and not decimals between 0 and 1. If using decimal values instead, it works even less.

The 3 screenshots are self-explanatory and you will see immediately the nature of the problem.

you need to use 0.50 as an example  for percentages I think. ie 50% is 0.50 have you tried that?

Hi  @Element115 ,

According to the snapshot, you select Percent in the dropdown, the Percent in this place does not mean percentage as in the datatype option.  It means you’re setting the rule boundaries as a percent of the overall range of values from minimum to maximum.

For example in the below sample, the 0 Percent means the minmum value -50%, the 50 Percent should be (50%+(-50%))/2=0, so the backgroud color of value from -50% to 0 get red, it's correct.

Instead, if you want to get the correct number value, you should select Number in the dropdown like this:

Yes, but with Percent selected and that does not work. But you are right when Number is selected it works, as @Kaly suggested. Thanks everyone!
