MS Access Report Percent Display - drop decimal if zero, otherwise show decimals

I have a field "discount" that is a number, double type.  Examples in the field are:
0.03
0.035
0.08
0.0425

I need to display these values like this on the report:
3%
3.5%
8%
4.25%

How can I format the "discount" field so that it will display the percentages like this on the report?

Thanks for your reply.
If you just set it to format to percent, you get:
3.00%
3.50%
8.00%
4.25%

I want:
3%
3.5%
8%
4.25%

Hi,

You could use a formula like this in place of your field

=IIf((Abs([YourField])*100)-Int(Abs([YourField])*100)=0,Format([YourField],"#%"),Format([YourField],"#.##%"))
