I am looking for an expression to change how percentages are displayed. Essentially if the numbers to the right of the decimal end in zero, lop off the zero. example...

100.0000% becomes 100%
99.6230% becomes 99.623%
99.5800% becomes 99.58%

Current format is p4

Expression is..
=iif(Fields!month2.Value = 0,"*",
iif(Fields!month2.Value = 1,"100%",Fields!month2.Value))

Use this type of code in your expressions (Formating)

=iif(Fields!month2.Value = 0,"*",
iif(Fields!month2.Value = 1,"100%",Format(Fields!month2.Value, "###.######%")))
