Hi All,
I have a query where one of it's fields is a percentage in decimal numbers and I want to make this decimal number when it appears in the report a whole number with no decimal places.
I tried formating it in the property section of the report and I set the property called "Format" to "Percent" and set the "Decimal Places" property to "0" so that it wouldn't show any decimal places but this is not what happened. Then I changed in to "General Number" and "Auto" and that gave me two decimal places or something like that.
Can anyone tell me the correct way to set these properties so that I will get a whole number for the percent value and no decimal places.
Thanks again in advance for everything.

When you say "make whole" do you mean round up, or just lose the decimals?

You can format to lose:

Format([youfield],"0")

Round will require a function

<Format" to "Percent" and set the "Decimal Places" property to "0" so that it wouldn't show any decimal places but this is not what happened.>

what did happen when you set the properties this way?

I just tested those settings on a decimal field (some have 3-4 decimal places) and did get whole numbers with no extra decimals

When i set the format up as follows "Percent" and "Decimal Place = 0" then I get a whole number alright but it is a whole number including some of the decimals.

What I mean is this here is an example:

So I have a

Result            Percent in Report     How I want it to show up in report
16.67654         1667%                                     16% (the % sign doesn't have to be there if it can't be it doesn't matter)

So it is like it is takeing the whole number 16 and adding the first two decimal places into the whole number as well. From the result i just want to see the whole number (16) with or with out the % that doesn't matter.

Thanks.
