Hello,

Can you please let me know the format of that field to display the percentage value
The format of the field is already in the code. It should be a numeric field with an implied decimal place.

Do you understand how to calculate a % in a program?

I would probably calculate the % to the needed "size" (xxx.xxxxxx or whatever), move the calculated value to an edited field for zero suppression and decimal insertion, and pre-pend or append the "%" character.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
