I get the Vlookup answer I was looking for which is 15:10 and another vlookup finds 00:55 I need to divid :55/15:10 to find the percentage.

I have formatted the cells to h:mm:ss and still nothing the first Vlookup is

vlookup(a1,range,2,0) which gives hours in this format 15:10

Second vlookup is

vlookup(a1,range,2,0) which gives hours in this format 0:55

I need to divide 0:55/15:10 to find the percentage and that is what is giving me the #value! error

Need Help

I am not sure if I follow your question or I do not see your problem.

=VLOOKUP(A3,F2:G4,2,0)/VLOOKUP(A2,F2:G4,2,0)

Format as percentage should give the same result as dividing the numbers manually or
separately.

If you want a percentage, format as Percentage.
