# FORMULA TO CALCULATE PERCENTAGE BASED ON CERTAIN CRITERIA

#### GMan62

##### New Member
I am trying to build a formula that will give me a certain Percentage based on the the numbers in the fields. Here is the example using Row 3 and columns C, D & E. info in the worksheet: C3 = 4 D3 = 3 & E3 =2

C3 D3 E3
4 3 2

Here is the criteria. If D3> C3 give the percentage of E3/C3, If D3< C3 give the percentage of E3/D3.

I want it to reflect the result as a Percentage ie 67%. The other thing I need to be able to do is I am doing this in different workbooks. So the page of workbook 1 is where I want the result displayed, but the information is gathered from a page in Workbook 2. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

The formula could be something like

=E3/MIN(C3, D3)

and format as percentage.

And the cells being in a different workbook shouldn't be an issue. Just have both workbook open at the same time, and just point and click to the specific cells that you want to use, so Excel can type the correct syntax for you.

Excel contains over 450 functions, with more added every year. That’s a huge number, so where should you start? Right here with this bundle.
