Default Percentage format

When I use a function or formula to fill a cell formatted as percentage,
Excel ignores the whole number rule and always multiplies by 100, so instead
of 10% I get 1000%. Is there a way to correct this?

Hi
you're probably entering 10?
1% is equal to 0.01
so you may enter 0.10 in your example or enter 10%
either should work

What's your formula and data? I can't reproduce anything like that if indeed
I use the correct formula for percentage

And make sure that "EnableAutoPercentEntry" *IS* checked.
