I have a percentage value that starts as text (0.05 as an example). If I convert it to a percentage it gets calculated as 5% instead of 0.05% ... and if i convert it to a decimal it keeps the format but i can't get it to report as a percentage in reports. Does anyone have an idea of how I can convert this text to the proper percentage value of 0.05%?
