Rounding Numbers

I have a query that states : Scope: [Quantity]/11 & "%"

The answer I get back is :9.09090909090909E-02%

How would I make it say : 9%

Declare a variable as an integer and assign it to that value.

What data type is the Quantity field?  If it is a numeric field, then you could format it as Percent, instead of appending a percent sign (which is text).  You can also select the number of decimal points to display; this is usually done in a textbox on a form or report, rather than in a query.

Scope: Format([Quantity]/11,"Percent") trbaze how would you divide 11 by quantity instead of quantity divided by 11
Same way you would quantity by 11.  
Format(11/[Quantity],"Percent")

Remember that the percent format funtion will move the decimal two places.  So if 11 / 2 is 5.5, then doing the percent format will make it 550%.
okay Thank you for your help
Your welcome.
You can also use the FormatPercent function and choose the number of decimals to display.  Both of these are listed in Access' built-in help.
