change format in fields

Hi, I need know how change formats in calculate fields. For example:
  Number3 =[Number1*Number2]
  Number3 = 1500*80
  Number3 = 120000

I need view 120.000,00 and not 120000, how act?...



RE: change format in fields

I'm assuming you meant you would like to see 120,000.00.

If that is the case, use the Cost fields instead:

If you do not want the $ to show, go into Tools, Options, View tab and remove.

Hope this helps!

RE: change format in fields

Ok, tanks for you answer!... In other forum comment me this option:

Format(Number3," #.##0,00")

Ok, the idea is CUSTOMISE FORMAT for calculate field, other question and excuse me...; how CUSTOMISE FORMAT for calculate field in porcent (%)...

Number1 = 10
Number2 = 5
Number3 = (Number1*Number2)
Number3 = 10 * 5
Number3 = 15

Ok, I need visualize the calculate field (Number3) how 15% and not simply 15.


PS: Please, excuse my english it's not very good...
