Percentage remaining
I am having trouble calculating the percentage remaining of our goal.
Our goal is $150,000.00 in sales. So far we have sales totaling $51,744.42. I need to calculate the percentage remaining in order to reach the $150,000.00.

I must be doing something incorrectly. I have a goal of $2,000,000. (cell
I7)and so far we have sales against this number of $635.545.71.(cell F7) I entered the formula =(I7F7)/I7 and I got 959% Linda "JonR" wrote: > > say you have 150,000 in cell A1 and 51,000 in cell B1. > > use this formula in cell C1 > > =(A1B1)/A1 > > Format cell C1 as a percentage > >  > HTH > > JonR > > Please rate your posts > > > "LindaW" wrote: > > > I am having trouble calculating the percentage remaining of our goal. > > Our goal is $150,000.00 in sales.

You have the right formula and appear to have set up the sheet correctly. I
tried it with your numbers and can't duplicate your results. Check your cells for typos. If that doesn't work try typing it into a different set of cells and see if you get a similar answer (don't cut & paste, as you'll duplicate the error).

The formula is correct and should return 68.2% remaining if your numbers are
correct in I7 and F7 Reenter the numbers and enter the formula in J7 or some other empty cell.

thanks, Jon, I calculated in a new cell and it worked. Thanks again for the
solution. Linda "JonR" wrote: > You have the right formula and appear to have set up the sheet correctly.
