Hey guys,

I have a cell that comes out 35.21 and would like to add a percentage sign to the end but keep it as 35.21 %. Whenever I try to format as a % it changes to 3521%. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

You will have to use another column for this. The new column will have the following formula and formatted as %.

=A2/100

How Can I do this in VBA? I have the value 35.29 and I would like to only add a % sign at the end (35.29%). Thank you for any help!

You can do it with a number format:

Code:
activecell.numberformat = "0.00\%"
for example.
