I am trying to show this in a cell: 83% Complete
The 83% is from a vlookup and I concatenate with the word "Complete".
Problem is that when i do this the % becomes the actual value
0.832458... How can i make it so it stays a percentage?
=text(vlookup_result, "0%") & " Complete"
or, in the cell with the Vlookup formula, just Custom Format the cell as
Type: 0%" Complete"
This latter has the possible advantage that the contents of the cell is still a number.
