Default Crystal Report displays wrong value.


There is a issue in VB & Crystal report version is 8.5.
I have got a report which displays wrong values though the values returned from the database is correct. It displays all the numbers by dividing 100 to it. I am getting correct values in some of the machines but not in rest. For eg if the value returned from the database is 80 then the report displays the value as 0.8 in some of the machines which is wrong. How do I correct this wierd error? Is there any system based setting where in I could go and change? We have checked the following things and it seems to be correct (DSN settings, Reports Versions)

Crystal report version is 8.5. In users m/c, no crystal report is installed.
Please tell me are there any settings to be set in user machines.

Reply asap.

It sounds like the display field is formatted for percent.
