Hi

I'm displaying a decimal value in a label.

I just want to add a % behind the label. I've tried
 + "%"  

Open in new window

but does not work

Code

   
Dim FinalFinalAPR As Decimal = Math.Round(FinalAPR, 1)


        lbAPR.Text = FinalFinalAPR 

Open in new window

 I just want to to display a % behind the lbAPR.text

thanks

You probably need to cast the decimal first. Try:
Dim FinalFinalAPR As Decimal = Math.Round(FinalAPR, 1)
lbAPR.Text = FinalFinalAPR.ToString() & "%"

Hi edjones1,
Whatever value you are adding the percent character to should be converted to string before concatenating the '%' char.
lbAPR.Text = FinalFinalAPR.ToString & "%"

Open in new window

Respectfully yours,
Alan
