Calculate price from GM %

I’m currently working on a worksheet with over 2000 products. Try as I might I cannot work out the formula required (or if it’s even possible) to quickly complete the task in hand without going through line by line.

I already have the cost of the product in the table. Is there anyway of entering a formula in the price column that calculates price from a desired GM %?

eg.

C3 - Price = ???
D3 - Cost = £0.92
F3 -Margin = 31.85%

Thanks

Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use \$ signs: \$V\$2:\$Z\$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying
Assuming Price = Cost/(1 - GM)

That’s gross margin % to be clear

Assuming Price = Cost/(1 - GM)

 C D E 2 Price Cost GM 3 1.35 0.92 31.85%

Thsnks for reply.. not sure what I’m doing wrong? Your price is correct above. But when I enter formula on excel that you have provided, price shows as 1.61 on my worksheet?

Sorry! Fixed!! Me being thick ..... again!

Thanks very much indeed!

Don't enter the formula. Instead, copy it from your browser and paste it to cell C3.
