Steve Werner Jul 14, 2016 4:50 PM (in response to Carlos_Sakamoto)I did a little searching for you. What you want are called "stacked fractions". The end of this link:
http://creativepro.com/finetuningyourtypesettingfractions/
"Stacked fractions (aka “nut” fractions) are preferred by some for setting math and other measurements, but are not available in most fonts, nor are they supported by the arbitrary fractionmaking feature of InDesign."
Here's a better, longer answer. Seems that you need to find a font which has stacked fractions. See the end of this link:
typesetting  Fractions in InDesign : Typing (not ½ = Alt + 0189)  Graphic Design Stack Exchange
"But then you'll have to find a high quality font that has a horizontal bar if that's what you're after. I'd start by contacting some good Font Foundry directly and see if they make one or could recommend one. House Industries is one that puts out really nice fonts IMO, not sure if any of theirs has a horizontal fraction style but you could ask them: http://www.houseind.com/"

I looked at some of those in a Google search "InDesign built fractions". Virtually all of them build fractions with slashes rather than vertical stacked fractions.
