Hi, my name is ***** ***** I would love to help you with your question.

Just to clarify, you are using Google sheets and you want to format cells as percentages, correct?

Expert:  Benjamin Larson replied 1 year ago.

To apply a custom number format to your spreadsheet:

  1. Highlight the data you want to format.
  2. Click the Format menu and hover over “Number” (or click Number format in the toolbar).
  3. Hover over "More Formats."
  4. Select Custom number format.
  5. Search in the menu text box to select a format. You can also add your own custom number format into the text box. You will want to add %
  6. Click Apply.

I got this info from here:

If you want to provide me with the link and have me do it for you, I can do that too, just let me know.

If providing the above information was enough and that solved your issue, awesome! In that case I would greatly appreciate it if you could please rate my answer. If you still need help just ask here and I will help.
