Percentage column

Hi
I need to create a percentage (%) column but all values should be divided with 100 before I can change Data Type (from a decimal number to percentage)

Anyone who can help me?

 

Decimal Numbers.JPGDecimal numbersPercentage.JPGShould be 98,58%

Re: Percentage column

Not so easy @PR20048119 
As I already mentioned, if I do what you recommend I get totally wrong percentage. 
I have value 98,640 and if I just change to the percentage I get 9 8640,00% instead of 98,64%.
Somehow I need to divide with 100 all raws in this column and after that, I can change to percentage. But I don't know-how.
