    I want to type 50 into a table and want it to register 50%.

    When I format the entry as percent. I don't get the desired result.

    Do I have to do something other that just format as percent?

    Thanks,
    Darrell

    You can type:
    50%
    or
    .5
    and Access will interpret it as 50%.

    If you are using a form to enter the data, this article explains how to have
    50 interpreted as 50%:
    Enter a value as a percent

    You might also be interested to know that the next version of Access (2007)
    will do this without the code.

    50 / 100 (format as a percentage) = 50%

    So

    FieldName: ([PercentField]/50)
