Bug in conditional formatting?

Dear community,

 

I am facing some issues with conditional formatting that I do not understand.

It is based on the share of a category within another table.

I based the background color (grey) in the left row on a rule of >5%. How can it be that also lower values are colored? (e.g. the 8 in the end represents 0.92%, why is it still in grey?

Hi, @ddorhout 

 

You should use 'number' as condition, then it will display correctly.

'Percent' is used to filter the range, not for every percentage of the number.

Apperently, when I dont base the rule on the percentage, but the number, then it seems to work.
