I'm doing my physics homework and need to input a percent sign (%) into a formula that is inserted into a writer's document file, but "%" only shows up in the formula not in the document. I looked up the help for OO math, it said, "To display numbers as percentages, (numbers that are multiplied by 100) add the percent sign (%) to the number format." which was what I did. I'm using OOo 2.0.4 on Windows XP. Is this a bug, or there is some other way I didn't find out?

Try with the percentage sign in quotes: "%"
