    Is there a way to change the default setting of frequency tables so
    that percent columns are shown with %? When cut/paste frequency tables
    to Excel, you need to devide it by 100, and it's annoying. Crosstabs
    and other custom tables outputs do have percent shown with %, but not
    frequency tables. Thanks for your help!

    Excel and Statistics have different ideas about what % means. In Statistics, it is just a format, and it displays the numerical value. In Excel, percent format automatically scales. So you will have to either divide by 100 or change the format in Statistics or Excel.

    You could manipulate the pivot table in Statistics with an autoscript to transform the data automatically.
