Hi everyone!

I'm looking to create a custom function that find the percentage of a selected cell. Below is the long hand of the formula I am trying to program.

=(cell selected)*90%

Ideally I'd like the percentage to be a variable (user enters). Thank you!

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

Hi cyounkin,

how about something like this?



Function VAR_PERCENTAGE(x As String, y As String)

VAR_PERCENTAGE = x * y

End Function



custom functions always trip me up too because they are so simple.

have a great day :)
