Excel Facts

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.

Hi CarlaC:

Welcome to the Board!

If A1 is 100, and B1 is 10, then B1 is 10% of A1 -- and you will get that by

=B1/A1*100

Is that what you are looking for?

Regards!

Yogi

Formula is "one cell" divided by "another cell".
Format the result by Format|cells|Percentage.

=A1/B1

where A1< B1 and B1<> 0.

Stated otherwise:

=MIN(A1:B1)/MAX(A1:B1)
