I am looking for a way to divide a fraction in one cell and put the percentage of that fraction into the next cell.

Example: B2- 36/164 C2- Percentage from B2 (36/164 = 21.95%)

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hey,

B2: =36/164
C2: =B2

Then format C2 as a percentage with 2 decimals

Is this what you are after?

If it's text you could try:

=LOOKUP(10^9,--LEFT(A1,{1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9}))/LOOKUP(10^9,--RIGHT(A1,{1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9}))

The formula: =36/164 that displays the number 0.2195...

or

The text value: 36/164

Another way:

<br /><table border="1" cellspacing="0" style="font-family:Calibri,Arial; font-size:11pt; background-color:#ffffff; "> <colgroup><col style="font-weight:bold; width:30px; " /><col style="width:76.04px;" /><col style="width:76.04px;" /><col style="width:76.04px;" /></colgroup><tr style="background-color:#cacaca; text-align:center; font-weight:bold; font-size:8pt; "><td > </td><td >A</td><td >B</td><td >C</td></tr><tr style="height:19px ;" ><td style="font-size:8pt; background-color:#cacaca; text-align:center; " >1</td><td > </td><td > </td><td > </td></tr><tr style="height:19px ;" ><td style="font-size:8pt; background-color:#cacaca; text-align:center; " >2</td><td > </td><td >36/164</td><td style="text-align:right; ">0.2195122</td></tr></table><br /><table style="font-family:Arial; font-size:10pt; border-style: groove ;border-color:#00ff00;background-color:#fffcf9; color:#000000; "><tr><td ><b></b></td></tr><tr><td ><table border = "1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" style="font-family:Arial; font-size:9pt;"><tr style="background-color:#cacaca; font-size:10pt;"><td >Cell</td><td >Formula</td></tr><tr><td >C2</td><td >=--LEFT(B2,FIND("/",B2)-1)/--MID(B2,FIND("/",B2)+1,16)</td></tr></table></td></tr></table>

You're welcome, thanks for the feedback.
But, the pgc01 formula is better.
