SSRS Chart – Displaying % sign on Y axis + Displaying % sign on Data Labels

Hi guys,
Today i would like to show you the little trick for your SSRS graphs.

I am displaying values (percentage values) in my bar charts as “Data Labels”. But the “Y” axis of my bar char still displays value without the “%” sign.

What I need:
The bar chart should display the “%” value in Data Labels as well as on my Y axis.

Simple try:
When you format the Data Label to apply “%” sign by making it of type “Percentage” in “Series Label Properties” -> “Number” -> “Percentage”.
