Formatting a percentage mail merge field

Guest

Word XP is converting my percentages from Excel from 41% to 0.4135483679 I am
trying to find the correct syntax to format the field. This is what have
been trying
{ ={mergefield amount } *100\#"0%"} I keep getting a syntax error.

I am still getting "!Syntax, {" error. Actually I found that site before I
posted here. That is where I got my original attempt at formatting the
field. Any thoughts as to why its not working?

Try putting a space before the backslash.

Kylor,

Are you entering each pair of field code braces with CTRL+F9 ?
