Drawing scale in title block

How can I set the sheet scale in the title block to a ratio? I have a table
with a cell that contains {0:SCALE: }{1:&scale:1}, but the scale is
displayed as a decimal. (eg. actual scale = 1:2 but SCALE: 0.500 is
displayed in the title block) I would also like for the scaled views on the
drawings to show a ratio instead of a decimal scale value.
Thanks

Oh, yeah! Thanks, David. I lost sight of the forest looking for the trees. That was one of those questions I'd put in the "to be sorted out" bin but hadn't yet needed to address.
[ A tip (?) for Pro/E newbies, such as myself, about using Help: When searching for an option that might be used for some purpose or other try adding an underscore to the search term. A global search of the Detail functional group for the term "_scale" returns an unintimidating thirteen hits vs. forty hits for "scale". ]

Any help in using Help is appreciated. Another hint: if searching on a literal phrase, enclose in quotes ~ it actually works!; otherwise, get the results of searching on each word separately. Can't imagine why it doesn't AND this stuff, but it doesn't. The quotes narrow down the hits considerably.
