# Percentage With Formula Or Conditional Formula

Mar 14, 2009

I am trying to figure out 3 differnent percentage categories but I cannot figure out what formula or conditional formatting that I should be using. The scenario is as follows:

For example, Jamaal is authorized for 80 hours per month but only uses 15 hours.

What I need to figure out is if he is below 25% of hours funded, then he will be exited from the program. If he is between 25% and 50%, then he will be warned. If he is between 50% and 75%, then he has excellent attendance.

Therefore, I came to the conclusion that:
0.25% x 80 = 20 hours
0.50% x 80 = 40 hours
0.75% x 80 = 60 hours

Which means that Jamaal is in the below 25% category, meaning he will need to be exited, unless he improves his attendance. But what I want to show on my spreadsheet, is a color RED for below 25%, and other colors for the other categories. But I don't seem to be able to conclude it all into 1 cell. I tried using the Conditional Formatting and the below 25% works but once I add a new rule for between 25-50, then my rule for below 25% doesn't work anymore. I don't know if an actual formula exists for this. Does will be a monthly spreadsheet that I will be working off of so it would be nice if all I do is input the total hours used and BOOM it tells me if the client is below 25% hours used or above.

## YTD Percentage Formula

Mar 6, 2008

Is there a formula that I may use to keep track of the YTD percentage of attendance of volunteer workers over the course of a year? I have approx 200 workers meeting once a week. Their names are listed in column "A" from A-4 to A-204. Starting in column "E" is the date of the weekday for attendance.

For Example: E-1 is dated Jan. 7, 2008. F-1 is dated Jan. 14, 08 etc. I place a one (1) in the corresponding cell to show that they attended. The formula I need would start in cell D-4 and be dragged down to D-204.

There also must be a way to factor in the weeks which we are to meet that must be cancelled due to weather etc. The worker should not be penalized due to our cancellation.

## Percentage Formula

Mar 26, 2008

how to construct a formula that would give the amount of deposit needed initially that would equal, after an immediate percentage reduction, a certain amount.

For example, if the initial deposit was immediately decreased by 2.9 percent and 30 cents (as in a PayPal transaction), what would that initial deposit have to be to equal exactly 50 dollars after being reduced?

## Formula That Will Look Across Row And Will Total Percentage With Max Of 100%

Feb 11, 2014

I am looking for a formula that looks across and row or column and makes sure that a max of 100% or dollar value is not reached. Is there any solution that would allow for flexibility. Below would be the wrong result.

30% 20%25% 10%30% 115%

## Formula Calculate The Percentage

Nov 16, 2005

I have a row of numbers from 1 to 26 in cells A1 to Z1 representing numbers
'chosen' at random by 500 unique people.

I have another row of numbers representing the 'frequency' that the
aforementioned number was chosen in cells A2 to Z2.

Example:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 ...
10 4 16 9 23 20 61 13 18 43 17 ...

Is there a formula that I could use to calculate the percentage (0%-100%)
that each number was chosen?

## Formula To Calculate Percentage

Dec 20, 2013

I need a correct formula to calculate percentage...mine is not correct

Cell J18 will hold the formula.Range C18:I18 will have values.

C18 will have a value for today,D18 will get a value tomorrow,E18 will get a value 1 day after tomorrow etc..etc..

J18 formula - =sum(C18:I18)/7

If I only has a value in J18 then it will divide that single number by 7.......can a formula only divide by entries in cells....if I have 1 entry then it divides by 1,if I have 4 entries then it divides by 4 etc..etc until thee is 7 entries.

## Percentage Formula With Negatives

Jan 28, 2009

I have a question regarding calculating percentage differences, here is how our formula works, but I've done a little research regarding using negative number for percentage calculations and am not sure...

For sample:

this year (TY) we had net profit of \$200 million
last year (LY) we had net loss of -\$32 million

our formula works kinda like this:

=IF(B49="","-",IF(B49=0,0,D49/B49-1))

but if, the comparing numbers is negative should I convert that to an absolute number using ABS ? what if both numbers are negative ?

The way I understand the current formula is like this:

if B49 is blank, then insert a dash, otherwise IF B49 is 0, then 0 (since we can't divide by 0), otherwise do the formula.

## Add Modifier Cell To Percentage Formula?

Oct 1, 2013

here is the formula I am using. =IF(A5 < =Schedule!\$K\$9,100%,0%) We only track complete and not complete....so my formula above just comes out to 100% or 0%. What I am wandering is if I can add a modifier so that it can be adjusted w/o just over writing the formula. Ok so my vision is, the formula above is in cell B5.....next to it in cell C5 I would like a modifier so that if that amount should really be 85%. I can type 85% in C5 and it will change B5 to 85%. So I guess the formula would be more like =IF((A5 < =Schedule!\$K\$9,100%,0%),or = C5))

## Formula: Extract Percentage From Total

Oct 6, 2006

I need to make a formula to extract GST from a total amount, when the total amount also has PST (like state tax) in it.

GST is 7%

This is how I would figure it out manually

\$100/1.07=93.46

I have data one sheet which is

Date Ref No Type %complete
Monday 1 Erect 75
Monday 2 Erect 50
Tuesday 1 Erect 95
Wednesday 1 Erect 100

On the next tab I am consolidating all the reference numbers and want to capture the latest % complete

I have been trying =Max(if ref no=1 and type = Erect, % complete),1

But when I try it for reference number 2, it just says 100% aswell, when that should be 50%.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Percentage And Insert Cell Based On Percentage

Apr 3, 2013

I have a workbook that I've built for a project. I've attached a sample workbook. What I'm trying to do, for the entire sheet or workbook if possible, is turn any Cell with a percentage of 30% to 49% yellow and any cell with a percentage of 50% or more Red. I would also like to move the ID's of the variable cells, for example Id number 9922, to the cells beside the description of the rows, Affected would be an example, if the information contained in the same row as the ID meets with a set of variables.

For example I only want the ID's moved if they correspond with IDsub 1-25. One more thing, the people who will be using this spreadsheet will be copying data from a website when it is imported it does not insert the values as numbers. I would like to format the cells, in example workbook they would be any of the cells labeled ID IDsub Variable or Number, so that anything put in that cell will automatically be converted to a number.

I should also probably add that the formatting will be done on approximately 80 rows a sheet with 47 sheets.

## Formula To Calculate Percentage Based On Number And Text In Cells

May 14, 2014

I have a form in work which acts as a tick sheet for tasks complete on a construction site. When a task is complete I copy & paste from a key of dates i.e. week ending 11.05.15, this allows me to see what week a task was complete.

Generally I only marked off tasks which were 100% complete but my manager wants me to enter the % of the task complete also, i.e. 80% in the box.

So my question is how can I have the formula assume that any box with a date & shading is 100% and any cell with a number i.e. 80 is only 80% complete. I need it to monitor around 150 cells and give me the overall % complete based on what i have discussed.

## Formula To Determine Required Values To Achieve Target Percentage?

Aug 24, 2014

Data is;

83300 - hypothetical number of times I have fired my gun at target.
43209 - hypothetical number of times I have scored bullseye.

So, my bullseye percentage = 43209/83300, or ~51.87%.

Need formula to determine how many more consecutive bullseyes I need to shoot, in order to achieve 70% ratio.

Since each shot from now on will be a bullseye, both values (hits & shots) will increment together.

## Lookup Percentage Formula Depending On Price Entered In Cell?

Jan 28, 2013

I have the following table in excel:

Price: Percentage:
\$150 10%
\$100 12%
\$50 14%

I'm trying to use the percentage depending on what price I enter in a cell. For example; if I enter \$135 then 10% will be used, if I enter \$65 then 12% will be used, and if I enter \$47 then 14% will be used.

## Formula To Return Percentage Of Duration Elapsed Between Two Dates A Third Date Represents?

Feb 20, 2014

I need a formula that will calculate the percentage of the total duration between two dates (in dd.mm.yyyy hh:mm format) that a third, intervening date represents.

As an example:

a) 10th Jan 2014 09:00
b) 20th Jan 2014 09:00
c) 30th Jan 2014 09:00

In this case the answer sould be 50% because 'b' represents exactly half of the time elapsed between 'a' and 'c'.

Note: the formula needs to work effectively across the boundary between two consecutive years.

## Conditional Median Formula Into Conditional Quartile / Percentile?

Apr 15, 2014

Having trouble changing this formula from its current Median to a Quartile or Percentile. The median formula looks like this:

(MEDIAN(IF(DATA!\$B\$15:\$DZ\$15=1000,DATA!\$B26:\$DZ26))) and works perfect.

However I can't figure out how to manipulate it into a percentile keeping the condition of

IF(DATA!\$B\$15:\$DZ\$15=1000)

## Conditional Percentage Based On Conditional Sum

Mar 13, 2008

I have a list containing blocks of stock price values with each block representing a series of values at a given time e.g

1400 156
1400 99
1400 74
1400 86
1400 256

The number of entries may vary for each block but is never more than 60. the next block may be e.g.

14:05 15
14:05 42
etc

and down a very long list of around 65000 entries. I'm looking for a routine that will add up all the values in each block and calculate the total for that time block. I then need to fill in an adjacent column with the perecentage that each value is of the total. A completed block may look like;..............
