Concatanate Measure and Text string in DAX

I have a measure which calculates the percentage such as:

X=a/b

I then format the result as a % with 0 decimal places (so a whole number percentage) I then created a measure (Text string and result of previous measure)

Y = "MAPE " & [X]

However the [Y] measure is causing the [X] result to appear as decimal places. I would prefer the result to be the string and a whole number percentage for the [X] Can someone please assist to create a measure that will provide this result ?

@blytonpereira

Try the following formula using the INT function:

`Y = "MAPE " & INT([X])`

Re: Concatanate Measure and Text string in DAX

Thank you that does work in some cases however in my case the value I want to display as an integer is a percentage.

So for example 29 % is a 0.29.

If I do put INT (Mymeasure) the result will be 0 as it rounds down to 0

So I need the value to display as 29% rather than 0 or rather than 0.2994543 etc.

Thank you
