Convert In-Place, no new column, Decimal to Percentage

 

Power Query, Is there anyway to convert a number to a percentage without adding a new column?

 

Sample Data:

Re: Convert In-Place, no new column, Decimal to Percentage

You can just adjust the data type, e.g. via the data-type-button in the column header (at the left).

 

Otherwise, various options on the "Transform" tab adjust data without adding a column.

So if you need to divide the results by 100, go to the Transform tab - Standard - Divide.
