Re: microsoft works 8 in windows vista

You should be able to click on the cell (or highlight the range), right click on the area and select Format Cells from the menu list that pops up. Does that work?

How do I fix how my percentage shows on the excel spreadsheet?

On the home toolbar, there is a section titled "Number". That would be where you would change the format to whatever you want it to. Even Red..
So, all you have to do is enter in the number you want and Excel puts in the decimal point, or the dollar sign, or the percent sign for you. And you can even change the amount of decimal places you want it to go as well..

Highlight the cells/numbers you want to format, then go to the number section on the toolbar (edit), and select the format that you want.

Excel is a spreadsheet - it is less structured than a database and all of the data appears on one (or more) pages along with many calculations and summaries of data.
A database is structured so that all the information is kept in the same format for each member record of the database - Databases are better at processing larger volumes of information.
Some tasks can be performed equally well in either spreadsheet or database -
Often data is stored in a database but analysis is done in the spreadsheet.
