# Percentage Of Number Greater Than Other Numbers

Sep 7, 2007
"in Excel" - my formula for cell C11 is: "What percentage of the time (occurrences) was the value in cell B11 greater than the values in A1 thru A10?"

As in...:

100

99

98

97

96

95

94

93

92

91

90...95.....40%

89...16.......0%

88...123...100%

87...90......20%

So no data in first 10 rows of Col B. (Or Col C, of course.) Then for the value that appears in B11, how many times (out of 10, in this example for sake of ease) was that value greater than the entries in the first ten entries in Col A:

95 (cell B11) was greater than A10, A9, A8 and A7 (91, 92, 93 and 94). So 4 times out of 10, B11 was greater; 40% is the answer the formula would yield.

16 was never greater than any entries in A2 thru A11, so 0%.

And 123 was greater than all the entries in A3 thru A12, so 100%. Etc, copied down the sheet...

I have two columns A and B. In each column are a list of numbers. I want to count the number of times the numbers in column A are greater than the numbers in column B and display it in the form of a percentage. An even easier way for me to do what I need is as follows...I have a third column (column C) that subtracts A from B...if it is a negative number, the cells in column C are autoformated to color the cell red. If it's a positive number, the cell is colored green. Is there a way I can count the number of cells that are red and divide them by the number of cells that are green to get a percentage?

Can use an icon set conditional format to solve the following -

if I have an order figure in A1 and a received figure in A2 I want to show a tick in A3 if the received figure is within 10% either side of the order figure.

I have what may be a math question as much as an Excel question. See my attached spreadsheet example in which I grow the denominator of a ratio by a fixed percentage until it equals or exceeds the numerator. This results in the denominator being grown X number of times.

I have a set number that I need to allocate over a flexible period of say 5 -11 days.

I have applied the traditional split per day to each number i.e. a monday normally results in 20% of transactions, Tuesday 25% etc.

The issue comes in when I try to allocate the budget over a period longer or shorter than a week.

Therefore the budget for the 9 days is being allocated over the period of 9 days which results in a overall allocation of 150%. (duplicate mondays etc).

Is there a way to limit the entire period to a set number and have the numbers adjust themselves accordingly up or down to match it other than multiplying it by a factor?

Example attached: Excel Problem.xlsx

How to create a formula in cell M2 that looks at the second row of numbers (0 and 500s) and tells me the rightmost value that is greater than zero. In this example it would return 12.

Second Question: Is there a way to return any counted value, for example the second-to-last number that is over 0?

I have the attached table of numbers and I need a formula at the end of each column to identify whether any cells in that column consecutively have numbers in them greater than zero. Ideally by a count of how many cells in the column have consecutive numbers greater than zero (so if there are three 1's in a row and then a zero and then another 2 1's I want it to count 5).Excel Help.xlsx

I have been browsing this site for some time but never posted. It looks like a great community and looking forward to learning!

I am trying to create an array in VB that searches an entire column (L) that has nothing but numbers in it. I want to search for all numbers that are >= 6. If the number is greater than six store the value in column A. At the end, I need to display a message box that has all the values in A that match the criteria where column L is greater than 6.

I have found all kinds of copy to other sheet formulas and static finds.

I'm trying to figure out 2 seperate formulas - see sample data below:

1) how many are 0% (Answer: 3)

2) how many are greater than 0 but less than or equal to 24. (Andwer: 2)

I can't come up with the 2 calcs.

There is a formula in cells below (Example: =$BA150/$BA$3). Will my calculations just not work when there is already a formula in that cell?

14.3%

71.4%

42.9%

71.4%

0.0%

I have several line graphs produced in excel. The X axis represents time (but is actually is just a 'general' number) and the Y Axis is a number .

The Y Axis generally varies from -10 to +10. I want to work out the percentage of time where the graph is in + and -.

If it makes it easier to know, the data will always change by +1,-1,+0.25,-0.25 or 0.

If this is possible i would then like to have a formula/or however it is possilbe, to work out +,- and neutral (0).

I have also attached a graph for a viewable example.

I have been using conditional formatting for a project in Excel 2007 but as the end users are using Excel 2003, I have had to switch to the following VBA solution as my requirements exceed the standard 3 available conditions. I have looked at using custom formatting but I need to format the cell colour rather than just the font colour.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

Dim icolor As Integer

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("C19:IV384")) Is Nothing Then

Select Case Target

Case "0.5", "1", "U"

icolor = 38

Case "C", "M", "P"

icolor = 40

Case "A", "S", "D"

icolor = 36

Case "L", "UP", "C/E"

icolor = 35

Case Else

'Whatever

End Select

Target.Interior.ColorIndex = icolor

End If

End Sub

* When the macro is run on one worksheet, formatting and values are replicated simultaneously on another identical worksheet (not necessarily vice versa).

* As well as formatting cell colour when containing a value, a border should also be added with different colours for the top, bottom, left and right border.

* When the cell contains no value, the borders should return to how they were previously.

Pretend their are two Tabs in excel.

Tab 1:

"A1" contains a random number: "20"

Tab 2:

Column "A" has tonnes of random numbers:

6000 - Starting Balance (changeable)

5890

5800

5950

6080

6100

6180

6250

6300

an so on... (1,000 rows)

Based upon the number "20" that I placed in A1 on Tab 1, I want a formula that looks at the first 20 rows in column A within Tab 1, and then calculate the percentage change between the extreme "peak to trough" of the highest number to the lowest number within the 20 rows...

Below should make it really simple:

6000 - Starting Balance (freely changeable)

5890 -1.83%

5800 -3.33% - This was the lowest percentage change from the starting balance of 6,000

5950 -0.83%

6080 +1.33%

6100 +1.67%

6180 +3.00%

6250 +4.17%

6300 +5.00%

what I'm trying to do.

Background:

I play a game that requires 5 members to play, however you can have more then 5 members on the team. In order for a player to receive points for playing they must have played at least 30% of the total games played. The problem for me is when trying to figure out how many games someone needs to play to get to 30%, the total goes up as they play those games.

What I would like to accomplish:

I'm looking for help on a formula that would figure out how many games a player would need to play to get to 30%. I have a column that is total games played, %of games played by player, games played by player, and games needed to play to get to 30%. Basically the user would enter the # of games played by each player, and the total games played overall for the team for that week, the spreadsheet would then show the # of games each player that isn't above 30% would need to play.

I tried to make the question as clear as possible, if anyone needs clarification,

I have a spreadsheet that I need a formula so that when a number appears in one column, then automatically it will put text (only) in the adjacent column. I have attached the sample spreadsheet for review. What I need is if there is a number in column A then, put a " / " (forward slash) in column B. If there is only a 0.00 in column A, then put nothing in column B. I tried the IF function an it errored out stating that the " / " was not a number.

I have a series of numbers in cells B2 to G2. The maximum value of each of these columns is found in B5 to G5. Is there a formula that will calculate the percentage of each of the values in row 2 (B2 to G2) and tell me which is the lowest number based on the percentage? Example...

Row 2: 12, 100, 43, 1444, 141, 332

Row 5: 25, 140, 55, 3000, 244, 440

Which number in row 2, is the lowest percentage of the total possible points found in row 5?

B2 is 45% (12 divided by 25), C2 is 71%, D2 is 78%, E2 is 48%, F2 is 58%, G2 is 75%.

I want a formula to tell me in a new cell that "12" (in B2) is the lowest percentage in that series.

I have a rather large report full of data, 10+ columns contain a RANKING column, and these ranks, 1-10, are assigned by a % bracket:

1-20% = 1

21-40% = 2

41-60% = 3

61-80% = 4

81-100% = 5

101-120% = 6

121-140% = 7

141-160% = 8

161-180% = 9

181-200% = 10

There are several hundred rows in each column that all need individual ranks. My first thought is to program a if then else statement for 1 to 10 with a % limit range, but this isnt feasable as i would have to program a separate if statement for each of the many hundred rows, or do one heck of a fancy loop that i just cant contemplate (as the rows are split and sepperated... no solid uniform place for the data to be plugged.) What is the best way to go about this? I'm at a total loss of ideas with my knowledge of excel.

how to make a number automatically increase by a percentage at a certain interval.

For example, 1-12 need to be 3% of 100, so, 3. Then, from 13-24 need to be 3.5% of 100, and so on. Does anyone know how to do this?

Is there an equation to count numbers greater than zero without adding an additional column?

I had a COUNTIF equation but realized that the criteria that I used to use required an additional column. The additional column I used to have would be something along the lines of =IF(A1>0, "x", "") and then count the X's. I was just wondering if there was another equation that could reduce that step.

With four numbers, I am attempting to "return" a number that is greater than zero, EVEN IF zero is in the array. Meaning, I need the number greater zero, knowing zero is within the array. This will be a part of a much longer concatenate formula.

010 5 0

I would expect the answer to be "5".

I tried: =abs(min(A1:D1))

This works great if there is a negative number (e.g. a -5, rather than 5 shown above), but when the numbers are all positive, the result is "0", I want 5 or the next greater number above zero.
