Can anyone help me?
Here's what I'm looking for:
Col. A = Base period number
Col. B = Given number this current period.
NEEDED: Spreadsheet formula for:
If B >= A, what is %? (Example: A=20, B=30, the # I want should read 50.0, not 1.5)
Further, If B < A, what is the negative percentage, shown as a 1-place number w/a minus sign AND shown in Red. (Example: A = 40, B = 30. The result should appear as -25.0 in red, and not 0.75.)
Please help. Thanks.
Al, the only spreadsheet I'm familiar with is Excel, so I don't know the syntax you're using. There should be a help icon on the toolbar to take questions and tell you how to enter a formula.
Would appreciate having the formula in Excel. I can handle it from there.
