Thanks for your help here! I figured it out!

Here's what I did.

First, the IMPORTHMTL formula noted in my first post pulls in the data from Finviz. Here's what it looks like it (in text format):

*47.46*

Next, I created a new cell that chops off the extra two * using the REGEXEXTRACT formula and then convert it to a number using the VALUE foumula (AD2 = cell with the data):

=value(regexextract(AD2, "[0-9]*\.[0-9]+[0-9]+"))

The result is this:

47.46%

Voila!

Thanks for the suggestions!

Brian
