I need help with adding an arrow that will change direction up/dn when comparing two cells. I also need to note the difference

Example:
<TABLE style="WIDTH: 339pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=451 border=0 x:str><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 48pt" width=64><COL style="WIDTH: 50pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 2413" width=66><COL style="WIDTH: 49pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 2377" width=65><COL style="WIDTH: 48pt" span=2 width=64><COL style="WIDTH: 48pt" width=64><COL style="WIDTH: 48pt" width=64><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 12.75pt" height=17><TD class=xl25 style="BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-TOP: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; WIDTH: 48pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; HEIGHT: 12.75pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: silver" width=64 height=17> </TD><TD class=xl26 style="BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-TOP: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext; WIDTH: 50pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: silver" width=66>Last week</TD><TD class=xl26 style="BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-TOP: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext; WIDTH: 49pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: silver" width=65>This week</TD><TD class=xl26 style="BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-TOP: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext; WIDTH: 48pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 0.5pt solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: silver" width=64>

Go into Windows Chracter map and figure out what arrows you want to use - I'm using ones in Wingdings.

Change the Font to Wingdings in Column D and insert the formula into D2

=IF(C2=B2,"ß",IF(C2>B2,"á","â"))

For the +/- Difference all this is, is the formula =C2-B2 within Cell E2

Another option is to insert the symbols directly into your formula. So, for cell D2:
Code:
=IF(C2> B2,"↑",IF(C2< B2,"↓","–"))
