```Try an exact version of the equations. You still obtain a warning about
inverse functions, but you do obtain a solution.

Clear[y];
First@DSolve[{y'[x] == y[x]/50 - y[x]^2, y == a}, y, x];
y[x_] = y[x] /. %
{y'[x] == y[x]/50 - y[x]^2, y == a}

(a E^(x/50))/(1 - 50 a + 50 a E^(x/50))
{True, True}

can anyone help what is wrong?
On version 7 I enter

DSolve[{y'[x]==.02*y[x]-y[x]^2,y==a},y[x],x]

and get

During evaluation of In:= Solve::ifun: Inverse functions are
being used by Solve, so some solutions may not be  found; use Reduce for
complete solution information. >>
