Hi, I'm using VB 2005, WinForms. I have a DataGridView that contains a column for a score value. In my DataBase table the scores are formatted as percenatges like such (98%, 73%, 100%, etc). However, when they load into my DataGridView, I'm seeing them formatted as decimals (.98, .73 and as 1). I would like to convert the data type of the DataGridView cell to "percentage" (%).

How would I do that assuming my line of code is?

dgvStudentInfo.Columns("Grade%")

Thanks,
Fulano

i believe the formatting option for percentage with no decimal places is "p0"

Me.dgvStudentInfo.Columns("Grade").DefaultCellStyle.Format = "p0"
