TO_PERCENT

Converts a provided number to a percentage.

Sample Usage

TO_PERCENT(A2)

TO_PERCENT(0.40826)

Syntax

TO_PERCENT(value)

  • value - The argument or reference to a cell to be converted to a percentage.

    • If value is a number or a reference to a cell containing a numeric value, TO_PERCENT returns value converted to a percentage, with the standard interpretation that 1 = 100%.

    • If value is not a number or a reference to a cell containing a numeric value, TO_PERCENT returns value without modification.

Notes

  • Because dates and percentages are both numbers, TO_PERCENT will convert dates to percentages successfully. However, these conversions are not typically meaningful.

  • TO_PERCENT is equivalent to clicking Format and then Number and then Percent from the menu bar.
