    in my table my data type is set to number.
    the field size is set tup long integer, and the format is set to percent.

    can anyone tell me why this field in my form takes the entered number and
    mutiplies it by 100.
    ie: enter 10 field shows 1000%

    how can i correct this

    Well ... 1 is 100% and therefore 10 is 1,000%.

    I suggest you want to use Single or Double rather than Integer and then try
    entering 0.1 (which is 10%).

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
