Default Mail merge formats

I tried the various merge field suggestions but still cannot get the merge
field to display as %. I would like it to display 77% not .77%.
Thanks.

You probably need to multiply your number by 100.

e.g.

instead of { MERGEFIELD mypercentage }

use

{ ={ MERGEFIELD mypercentage }*100 \#0% }

All the {} have to be the special field braces that you can insert using
ctrl-F9, not the ordinary characters you can type on the keyboard.

Just type everything else in between the special braces in the usual way.
