In column Z I have a list of numbers that are in the form of percents. In column AA I have a numbers that have no decimal place. In column AB I want to have the Column Z/Column AA.

I used the following code:     =Z2&"/"&AA2

The result would look something like this: 11%/25. Instead I am getting the following:

.107758620689655/24.874158743

How to I keep the numbers formatted like I want them?

Thanks!

I'm guessing that for cell AA is formatted to show 0 decimal places and is rounding to 25.
If that is the case you could change your code to
=TEXT(Z2,"#%")&"/"&ROUND(AA2,0)
