- Function to format a value into percent with no decimal

Subject: | Function to format a value into percent with no decimal |

I have about 50 rows of data, each with 2 columns. The first column

(A) holds a number; the format is General. The second column (B)

divides the number in A over 51, using this formula =A1/51 (and

=A2/51, =A3/51, etc.). The format for column B is Percentage with 0

decimal places, so the results look like 25%, 4%, etc.

I'd like to create a third column (C) which concatenates the results

of columns A & B to yield something like:

13 (25%)

But instead I get:

13 (0.254901960784314)

The function I'm using is:

=B1 & " (" & C1 & ")"

I'm thinking I need to somehow enter syntax so the C value formats as

a Percent with 0 decimals places. Any idea how I can do this? The

final value of C can even be a string; I'm not doing any further

calculations with so I don't even need anything to stay in a numerical

format.
