Columns D-J contain values currently in the percent format. Changing format to number, updates it to .08 for instance. I know I can multiply by 100 in another cell, then copy/paste... but is there a better way to accomplish this? Tia

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Enter 100 in a cell, copy, select the values of interest, Paste > Paste Special, tick Multiply. Then you can delete the 100.
