Where is Percentage Data Type?

Is there a way to show the '%' symbol at the end instead of using labels to do it.

So that when we view the datas in Contact List, we can see a column of numbers with '%'s

 

Thank you.

No way that I know of. Perhaps with a custom addon.

Re: Where is Percentage Data Type?

SQL only stores numbers, not the data types. The currency $ is an interpretation that is coded into the ACT! program. For a percent % to show the data type would need to be built into the program which, to my knowledge, it isn't. You might want to make a feature request for a future version.
