As @lalthan said, you just need to click the Percenage Format under Modeling.




It can be applied on your custom measure as well.

Hi, I'm answering an old post in hopes of getting my answer. 


I have a table report. I want to conditional format one column based on the value. As such, I have a number pulling in from the SQL query.  I do, however, want to add a percent sign to the column.  I cannot see the Data Type section under the Modeling tab.  Did it move?


Here's my report and PowerBI menu.

There are two ways to achieve this:


1. On PBI Desktop, click on your measure and formula will appear > Go to Modelling > Format as %


2. Create a measure as : format([Measure Name],"percent")


However, if you use the 2nd approach, then your measure will be treated as text

HI @lalthan


Thanks for your answer i know how to calculate percentage on power BI 

but my problem that i need to create a measure with my personal calculation rule , for example my measure [Measure]= ([Nombre_IC_S12]/([Nombre_Facturé_S12]+[Nombre_IC_S12]))*100

 and i need to show in the display % symbol

I need to show the result with % symbol ...


Best regards

if you do the formula with the "*100" it will give the correct Percentage without the Symbol, Try the formula without the *100 this will give you a "0." Value you can then change the format mentioned above in the ribon this will give you the Percentage along with the Symbol. @lalthan with his formula using the method you mention before removing the the "*100" from the formula will results in 1000% increase in the percentage since his formula already is doing the work and is a above 1.0  (ex 39% will become 3900%)
