Today. Before
60. 30 Formula (60-30)/60*100=+50
Wrong value shown.i want formula to shown +100.
Basicly the formula should calculate both plus and minus percentage in single formula.

If you are trying to get the percentage change from prior day to today (like a stock price), then your general formula is (Today - yesterday) / yesterday * 100.
You have it as (today - yesterday) / today * 100 which uses the incorrect denominator.
