# Google Apps Script: formato de porcentaje y matrices

I am perplexed by the following.

I have data on a google spreadsheet that I am pulling into an array. I am doing some modifications on the data and then putting it back into the spreadsheet. My numbers are formatted like this on the spreadsheet: 00.00% When they come into the array they are formatted like this 0.0, and when I put them back on the spreadsheet into 00.00% format, they are being divided by 100. So what started out as 20.00% becomes 0.20% when I put the data back.

So, I thought I'd multiply all the numerical values by 100 before I put them back on the sheet, which seems like it should be an unnecessary step.

My question is whether I could be doing something differently with how I'm handing the data in the array, or is multiplying every value by 100 my only option here?

This is a bug that has been known for a long time:

Problema 472: setValue(s) fails for percent formatted cells.

Visit and star it, maybe it will get more attention.

If you're reading and writing values from percent-formatted cells, you must recalculate the percentage values.

This function uses the format values for a range to apply the `*= 100` operation on any cell that's a percentage:

``````/**
* Adjusts the values for elements in values array if the
* corresponding format element is a percentage.
* Value array is changed in place, as well as returned.
*/
for (var row = 0; row < values.length; row++) {
for (var col = 0; col < values[0].length; col++) {
if (formats[row][col].indexOf('%') !== -1) {
// Adjust any percent formatted values
values[row][col] *= 100;
}
}
}
return( values );
};

function test () {
var rows = sheet.getDataRange();
var values = rows.getValues();
var formats = rows.getNumberFormats();

}
``````

thanks - starred it. I was just testing if the column was a number before I multiplied by 100 but I like your method of checking if the format is a percentage instead. - brl8

Or for values is below 200%, check if value is below 2 and if so convert it to percentage...

``````var inputValue = row[0];
if (inputValue < 2) {
inputValue = (inputValue*100 + "%")
}
``````
