    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%).
