    I have a 'percentage change' number I wish to display, ie:
    old result = 55
    new result = 66
    perc change = 20%

    which I would prefer to display as +20%

    Is there any way I can force NumberFormat or a similar function to print a + sign automatically in front of the number as it would a - if the number was negative?

    Nevermind, it was a simple addition to the output string:
    If Answer.StartsWith("-") = False AND (Answer = "0%") = False Then Answer = "+" & Answer
