Concatinating Percentage to Controlsource

For a control, I don't want to use the Format called "Percent".  Instead I want to concatinate "%" onto this controlsource code (only if the value is over 0).

=Avg(IIf([BankEntitlementDifference]>0,CInt((1-[HoursRemaining]/[HOURS])*100)))

How can I modify this syntax to put a percentage sign on the end of the value displaying on the report?

You can't add a % symbol to a field if it's defined as a number except through using a percent format.

If you want to add your own % symbol you must define the field as text - but of course it then can't be used directly as a number in calculations.
Why not just add a label control to the right  of the textbox that just contains the % symbol.
