How to set Y axis formatting to zero places.

I'm creating a chart via vba from within Access using late binding.  I am able to create the chart but the Y axis is displaying the percentage values to 2 places.  I tried setting it to "%00" but it is putting adding a zero to the zero value so that it appears like "%00"  .  I am also trying to display the y value for each bar within their respective bars.

With objXlChart
        .ChartType = 52
        .SetSourceData Source:=Range("PercentageAvailByPlanner!$A$1:$B$11")
        
        .PlotBy = 2
        '.Location where:=2, Name:="Percent Available By Planner"
        .HasTitle = True
        .HasLegend = True
        .Axes(2).TickLabels.NumberFormat  = "%00"    


    End With

Does this not work?

        .Axes(2).TickLabels.NumberFormat  = "0"

Hello Phillip,
I was working on the problem and I came up with .Axes(2).TickLabels.NumberFormat = "%##0".  I tried "#,##0" when I read your post, but it displayed the value rounded to the most significant digit so that %100 appeared as 1  I think that is more to do with how the source data is set.  However, your solution was helpful.  Thanks.

Are your Y axis values percentages?

If so, then this should work:

.Axes(2).TickLabels.NumberFormat  = "0%"

Thanks

It wasn't obvious to me that your figures were percentages.

If they were, then Rob's answer should work.

It doesn't round it to the most significant digit. It rounds it to zero decimal places, which was what was requested.

I was merely assuming % by the use of %00 in the question.

Thanks everyone.  I should have been more specific.  I'll split the points.  Thanks again.

I was reading "%" as a wildcard! I'm doing too much SQL Server.
