Dear All,

I have a field called Value which is being used in a report. Since this variable is a percentge calculation I need to release the figure with the % sign attached to it e.g. 8%. I am trying to use the format property but I must be writing something wrong. I have written the following:


Can anyone help me identify where is the mistake?

    You should not wrap additional text for the format command in '<' '>' (angle brackets). You should try a format string something like '<value>%'.

    Alternatively try something like:
    TextVariable :=  format(IntegerVariable) + '%';
    Note that this code assumes that you have an integer variable representing your percentage value.
