I currently running Crystal Reports 8.5
I am getting a Division By Zero error on the following code.

({INVENTOR.PRICE_CODE_1} - {INVENTOR.UNIT_COST}) / {INVENTOR.UNIT_COST} * 100

The code above is being used as a formula field {@Percent}
What gives?

Apparently you have a product with unit-cost of 0

Try this
if {INVENTOR.UNIT_COST} = 0 then
   0
else
   ({INVENTOR.PRICE_CODE_1} - {INVENTOR.UNIT_COST}) / {INVENTOR.UNIT_COST} * 100

If unit cost is zero you'll get this error.  Change your formula to this:

if {INVENTOR.UNIT_COST} = 0 then
   0
else
   ({INVENTOR.PRICE_CODE_1} - {INVENTOR.UNIT_COST}) / {INVENTOR.UNIT_COST} * 100;

That should handle the problem.
