What would be the error? The only one I can think of is division by zero, which
has its own error message.

May depend on exactly how you are defining % error, but I don't think
there's a built in % error function. I almost always use
(calculated-actual)/actual, but I know there are other ways to
represent error, too. How do you want to defing % error?
