Need to compare 2 values that are formatted on the query/table as Percent.

However, when I compare the values as variables in vba they revert back to a number.

example:

.33398....  Need to compare as 33.00% and 5.00%
.05

what do I need to do, I tried various formats without success.
format rs.fields(nTierno).value

as
Format(rs.fields(NTierNo).value), Percent, 2 decimal places....
                       If nfld < rs.Fields(nTierNo).Value Then
                            Debug.Print "nTierVal:" & rs.Fields(nTierNo).Value
                           Debug.Print rs.Fields("TotalNetUSExp").Value
                           Debug.Print rs1.Fields(strfld).Value
                           nOvrAmt = 0
                           BkOvrCalc = nOvrAmt
                           GoTo cont:

Hi Karen

Try:
Format(rs.fields(NTierNo).value, "0.00%")
