    Unanswered: % problem

    How could I display 10% when I entered 10 to a field in the form.

    My property settings for the field in the table and in form
    are as follow:
    Data Type: Number
    Format: Percent
    Decimal Places: 2

    But instead of displaying 10% it's displaying 1000%.

    Why??

    Thank you much!

    Re: % problem

    if you entered 10 the default is multiply it by 100 but if you would like to display as 10% you should choose one of this property:
    1-
    Data Type: Number
    Field Size : Double Or Single
    Format: Percent
    and when you entered you should enter as 0.1 not 10

    2 Data Type Text
    Input Mask 09 "%"
    and you can enter 10 then display 10%

    i hope this information help you

    Hello and welcome
    Integer means the number without decimal places .
