% fields treated as integers in calclualtions


This seems silly to me, but it appears that any percentage type field used in a calculated field is treated as a number instead of a percentage.
For example:
A percentage field set at 20%
A currency Field set at $500
multiplied together = $10,000

Change the 20% to 0.20% and then it equals $100.

Maybe this is intentional, but I cant’ figure out why.

Problem with formula
Excel type formulas

The best workaround for this right now is to include a constant in the formula (i.e., multiply the result by .01). We recognize that this is suboptimal behavior and we do plan on addressing it in the future.


Tanks for the quick response.
