    Adding + or - (Excel 2002)

    I recall seeing a spreadsheet (which I don't have access to anymore) where numeric results were listed with a plus (+) or minus (-) sign. I have a formula that is displaying a per cent % and I would like to format this cell to read results as +46% or -10%, for example. Does anyone know if there is a procedure that can do this?

    Thanks

    You can use a custom format for this.
    Select the cells you want to display like +46% or -10%.
    Select Format | Cells...
    Activate the Number tab (if necessary)
    Select Custom in the list of Categories.
    Enter the following custom format in the Type box: <code>+0%;-0%</code>
    Click OK.
