I have a field in an Access query

Interest: IIf([Interested]="Yes","Yes",([Percent]))

Interested is a text field and Percent is a field I want formatted like a percent. It is set up that way in the table but when put in this formula shows up as .0001 instead of 1%

how do I get Percent to format correctly

.0001 is in fact 0.01%

If you want it with decimals :
Interest: IIf([Interested]="Yes","Yes",format([Percent],"0%"))

or with 2 decimals :
Interest: IIf([Interested]="Yes","Yes",format([Percent],"0.00%"))

Cheers,
Andy

If you want it WITHOUT decimals :

or with 2 decimals :
Interest: IIf([Interested]="Yes","Yes",format([Percent],"0.00%"))
