Adding % sign after a number.

I ask this a couple of day ago, but my post is gone. Strange.

Anyway, I have a table and I would like it to show the number with a percentage sign. Instead of .23, I would like to see 23%. How can I do this.

I know with a form I can just put the % sign over the box with a clear background. But with a table it seem to be different. Any ideas?

Can I set % somewhere in the define field portion?

I am sure this is an easy, but I can't currently figure it out. Sorry for by so basic.

Hi there,

Firstly make sure the field is set to a number field.

Then in layout mode, click onto the field and go to Format->Number

Click onto format as decimal, click on use notation and change the dropdown menu to Percent

Hope this helps

Ed.

Just to add to that... 10% is 0.1, not 10 -- a trap that many newbies fall into.

A number field formatted as percentage will display "10" as 1000%.
