I have used this formula =VALUE(A2)&"("&(B2)&"%" &")" to combine two cells to look like this: 20 (8%).

I would now like to format the number to use 1,000 separator when appropriate so that, for example, another cell would look like this:
2,000 (18%).

I've tried various functions but nothing is working. Is this even possible? Anyone have a solution?

Thanks!

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

Are there decimal places in either number or are they always whole numbers?

both formulas work fine (even if the percentage has a decimal place). Thanks!
