Truncation error when calculating a field that is formatted as a percent?



I am trying to run a few calculations on a field in my .csv (box connected) data set that is in percent format.  Currently i'm receiving a truncation error.   If I do no calculations and process the data set, the field in my output shows as text.  


I have tried various CAST and CONVERT functions in my transforms but the truncation error persists.


Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    @jeffcavallo - When you mean it is formatted as a percent, how is it coming through? 90.0%, 90%, 90?


    What is the CAST / CONVERT function you are trying to run?

    I think if you try to CAST 90% you actually have to first get rid of the % and THEN cast it.
