# Percent Over Last Year

Feb 16, 2010
I want to find the percent of increase over last year. If last year was 100 and this year is 500 then the percent would be 500%. However things get tricky if last year was -100 and this year is 500 or if last year was 100 and this year is -500 then it get's screwy and I'm not sure what formula to use to handle any situation.

I have a percent 3.14%, that I want to show 15, 20 and 25% above and below that percent. I am showing below the results and then formula. The top calculation results in the same on both the left and right. However the -15,-20, -25% results are different. Which is correct.

3.14%

20% +/-

3.14%

0.63%

or

6.28%

1.57%

2.51%

[code].....

basic math, but I don't understand why the results are different.

I have two combo boxes: One for entering the Year, and one for the month. I can produce a message if the user leaves either box blank but I want a message to apear it the user selects a year AND month less than the current year (iYear) and current month (iMonth). I therefore need an AND statement between the two criteria but i dont know how to do it.

'....First Checks the Comboboxes arent blank then below Checks a future month/year secection is chosen

ElseIf YearBox.Value = iYear & iMonthbox < iMonth Then

MsgBox ("You may not enter Data before the current Month")

Else '...... Run main code here

Looking for a formula to compare current year values to previous year values. For example, if the current year has values for the month of January through March (100, 100 and 150), current year value will be 350 and the previous year value will be 975 (i.e. 300+275+400). The aim here is to make the previous year months summation equal to the present (or current) values. As new values are entered for the current year, the previous year's values will have to change to reflect the new month's value entered for the current year.

Month 2012 2013

Jan 300 100

Feb 275 100

Mar 400 150

April 650

May 454

June 800

July 500

Aug 375

Sep 525

Oct. 300

Nov 410

I am working on a budget for myself and want it to have running dates so the first data column will have the current month. I was able to succeed with this using the EOMONTH function followed by EDATE functions in the following cells, I then have these columns filled using a nested VLOOKUP MATCH function pair.

The problem I run into is with the months that extend into the next year, in my data table I have month by month listed started on 01/01/2014 ending 12/01/2014 but as soon as the month is no longer January the last column in my budget cannot find the information needed due to it looking for 2015. so what I would like to know is if there is a way to make the data table change the year to the following year after today is beyond that month, so for example on March 1 2014 both January and February would be changed to 2015.

Attached is an example : Budget Example.xlsxâ€Ž

how to mimic SELECT TOP 90 PERCENT from Access in Excel?

I can't use the percentile function because it interpolates the value if you don't have the right multiple of values in your array.

I have a spreadsheet that determines what percent increase over a previous quarter. The values can be negative or positive; however, I have one entry that I'm trying to divide zero by a number which results in the #DIV/0! error message. I rather have it say -1000% since that is the value I'm looking for. I now how to deal with a simple division by using an IF statement such as IF(B1,A1/B1,0), but this one is throwing me a curve.

The attached spread sheet is a quarterly percent increase over the last one. In the example, N00377 represents a machine in cell D14 and D17, where cell D17 is the last quarter, and I'm comparing it to cell D14 which should show an increase or decrease in cell F.

I have a set of data that is meant to distribute a certain number of items to different groups.

I have 10 groups, some will get more than others depending on previous usage. The problem is that I need the percentages to be in whole numbers and the total percentage needs to be 100%. I tried rounding but it doesn't work. Here is an example from one item's line.

Group#,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

Dist %,.1,0,.04,0,0,0,0,0,.87,0

These are rounded and it comes out to be 101%.

I need a formula to show percent value in a certain way in cell D1

formula is

C1 = B1-A1

but I am stuck to get the percent syntax in formula bar right.

D1 = PERCENT OF B1-A1

Example1

A1 B1 C1 D1

52.5-2.50-50 % ( RED/NEGATIVE PERCENT)

Example2

A1 B1 C1 D1

2.552.5050% ( BLACK/POSITIVE PERCENT)

Example3

1037.00-70% ( RED/NEGATIVE PERCENT)

3107.00 70% ( BLACK/POSITIVE PERCENT)

Somehow I seem to think I need to use the Value of C1

( which is required btw) to get a percent in D1, but not sure how it

would go in one complete formula in D1

I know that in order to draw a chart where a data line for a certain period is compared with the same period the previous year, one should have the 2 sets of data of different year side by side columnwise. However, is there a way where I could still churn out the same line chart when the data is all on a single column?

I have a spreadsheet with a large list of plants. Each plant has a breakdown of colors by container size. Each cell contains a number that corresponds to a percent, e.g. a cell may contain the number 20, which would also mean this number is equal to 20%. I want to change all numbers to a percent of 100, or turn 20, for instance, into .20. There are many hundreds of numbers that I need to make a percent, so I was hoping I could do this in one fell swoop somehow. This percent number will be used in another spreadsheet for calculating on order. How do I do this?

I have had a fascination with the lottery, purely hobby, and have had lots of fun over the years working different things out. The last 6 months though I have become fascinated with roulette & thought it would be a fun project to work out all sorts based around that, plus I don't have to wait for lotto results I can get instant numbers & results, however my latest attempts are hitting a brick wall!

I am trying to work out (in percentages) the increasing & decreasing % of 3, 11, 12, 22, possible outcomes

I have worked out the 2 possible outcomes initially for odd/even as follows

At the start they both have a 48.65% chance of hitting, then whatever is hit first the percentages are 76.33% and 23.67%. If you have 2 in a row of odd/even then the percentages are 88.49% & 11.51%, 3 in a row would give you 94.40% & 5.60% etc.

I have used the following formula for this (BM5 is where the totalhits for even are calc'd) ...

1. In neighborhoods that have zero units in a given price range I have it to display "-" , because this unit is not actually zero, the data is not available. Therefore a #VALUE! is displayed for the percent because it cannot calculate the "-". How do I get excel to glance over "-" and flag it for no calculation?

2. For the percentages I am having to manually do them row by row. I would like to set it up in a manner that allows me to copy the formula down by column and across by row correctly.

For instance in the percent for Mira Lagos I have =B4/N3 where b4 is the units for mira lagos and n3 is the total. I can drag that formula across by rowto get all the correct percentages for mira lagos price ranges only, but I cannot copy this formula down by column to any of the other neighborhoods. In otherwords I have to do a new formula for each subdivision.

e.g.

Grand Peninsula=B5/N3

Meadow Glen(Mansfield)=B6/N3

...etc

Again I would like to make it so I can copy the formula across by row and down by column so excel will automatically compute it.

In the attached sample (with macros enabled), you will find the problem when pressing the button “INDTAST DATA” (I apologize for the linguistic challenge, but the XL-sheets are in Danish… To relief – check the crash course in Danish below) and then entering some number in the two last textboxes (called “Forventet ændring i antal timer I næste kvartal (%)” and “Forventet ændring i omsætning i næste kvartal (%)”)… If you enter something there, the result will be multiplied by 100 in the worksheet.

I would like to be able to simply enter a full number – like 12 or 9,5– which will then be entered into the worksheet as 12% or 9,5% (and not 1200% or 950%)… I think the answer lies in inserting some code in the VBA code, when the macro writes the data to the worksheet, but you guys know more about it than I do...

I can, of course, enter a full number in the textboxes – followed by a %-sign, but that will slow down the process significantly as well as increase the risk of errors…

Virksomhed = Company

Kvartal = Quarter

År = Year

Branche = Industry

Fakturerede timer = Billed hours

Faktureret omsætning = Billed revenue

Timeforventning = Expected hours (next quarter)

Omsætningsforventning = Expected revenue (next quarter)

Indtast data = Enter data

In Excel, what is the reason for different results using the two formulas below?

Example:

Cell L6: 1413.5

Cell M6: 1312

Using the formulas below, the format of the cell is Percentage, one decimal place but I get different results

Formula 1: =-(1-L6/M6) The result is 7.7% change

Formula 2: =SUM(L6-M6)/L6 The result is 7.2% change

What is the difference in the formulas?

I have been able to format single cells to display negative percents (Budget to Actual hours), but I cannot copy the formatting to cells with positive percents without eliminating the format style I want. [I need to display, with the parenthesis, (13.6%)for negative results, but say, 18.6% for positive results.] When I copy the correctly formatted cell (13.6%) to another cell with a positive result, it sets the display to general formating.

As I have over 25 rows of data to compare against 62 projects and 12 programs, with each value potentially changing from one analysis to the other, I am looking for a method to automatically change the "look" of the results. I have looked at conditional formatting, but have had no indication this will do what I am looking for.

I have built a spreadsheet that pulls data into B60:AA240 (Sheet name is "Actual Numbers Report") from a different sheet in the same workbook. Some of the data is in Number format and the other is in Percent Format. What I would like to do is if AL10 in the Actual Numbers Report sheet says "Actual Numbers" then I would like the cells in B60:AA240 convert to a number format "000,000,000" If AL10 says "Trends" then I want it to convert the cells in B60:AA240 to a percent format "0.0%". I tried creating some code, but it doesn't seem to work.

Private Sub Convert_Percent()

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("B60:AA240")) Is Nothing Then

If .Range("AL9") = "Actual Numbers" Then

Range("B60:AA240").Select

Selection.NumberFormat = "000,000,000"

ElseIf .Range("AL9") = "Trends" Then

Range("B60:AA240").Select

Selection.NumberFormat = "0.0%"

End If

End If

End Sub

If this can work then the 2nd question I would have is can this same line of thinking work to format the chart that this data is pulled from? So if it is Actual Numbers the chart would be in a number format and if it is Trends then it will change to a percent format?

1040.291-82.94

1040.016-84.12

1049.82 -84.7

What I need to do is write a macro that will find duplicates in Column A, within a changeable tolerance, say 0.1 (10%).

After finding all duplicates within a tolerance in A, I need to make another "Master" worksheet with the Duplicates from A, and their counterpart in B. So if A1 and A4 where within 10% of each other, the "Master" worksheet would contain:

A1 B1

A4 B4

using the values, giving:

1020.00242-89.84

1021.494-80.41

I tried using SUMPRODUCT and some other functions but just can't seem to put my finger on this one. I'm sure it's not hard and am overlooking something.

21-25

26-30

31-35

36-40

41-50

51-59

60+

It should be separate formulas. I'm sure if I'm given the first and last ones that I could do the others myself. Also, if I needed to know the percent of males and females, would i use the same formula?

looking for a way to run some pivot tables on a large data table. Would like the result to show some different data extraction from the same field / column. The table is customer survey results for my employees, and the fields in question can have values from 1-5. I would like to finish the pivot table with all of these fields:

Row: Name (ok, that part is easy)

Data fields:

% of entries (column 2) that are 5

% of entries (column 2) that are 4 or 5

% of entries (column 2) that are 1 or 2

# of entries (column 2)

% of entries (column 3) that are 5

% of entries (column 3) that are 4 or 5

% of entries (column 3) that are 1 or 2

# of entries (column 3)

I'm hoping this is something I can do with calculated fields, but haven't been able to figure it out. So far all I have is a 'Count' function in the pivot wizard for the # of entries, but I'm not getting the % of entries at all. Column A = Name, Column B = 1st metric, Column C = 2nd metric. Fairly simple layout, but I have a small sample file I can attach if that's not explanatory enough.

I'm trying to track how complete a project is by checking if cells contain data, and if they do the percent in cell 'Y4' would increase.

I have 6 cells which represent milestones and if they contain data then they would add a certain percent to cell 'Y4'.

Cells B13 & R13 would have a weight of 15% each

Cells J13, J21 & J30 Would have a weight of 20%

Cell L34 would have a weight of 10%

Is there any way that if these cells contained any data that I could add that percent to the total in 'Y4'?
