    @Kaleb appending + "d" to your current formula will do that.

    = SUMIFS([Schedule Impact]:[Schedule Impact], Status:Status, "Open") + "d"

    @Kaleb Try this:

    =SUMIFS([Schedule Impact]:[Schedule Impact], Status:Status, "Open") + "d"

    Keep in mind, adding text to a number value means the number value is now stored as text; you won't be able to use the numeric portion for calculations without stripping out the numeric portion and using the VALUE function on it. For example, if "9d" is in the Results column, and maybe you want to multiply the 9 value by the value in the Quantity column, your choices would be to use your original formula to get the 9 and multiply that by the Quantity, or to use something like this: =VALUE(SUBSTITUTE(Results@row, "d", "")) * Quantity@row.
