Not clearly understanding what you're asking. There are already two columns in a frequency table that show percentage. What exactly do you want?

Thanks for your reply.

But for single choice questions, the percentage in the frequency table shows in a format like "0.45" but I need it to be "45%".

Hope this makes sence, thanks!

See the attached pic, which is a frequency table output... columns B, C, and D are already in % format; isn't your table like this?

Thanks. Sorry my previous explanation is not clear enough.

Sure the table you showed is a standard frequency table. All I need is to add "%" symbol.

SO for example, 44.8 would be converted to "44.8%".

Thanks again!
