    Thumbs down

    Hi,

    I want to show the variance between 2 values, along with a plus or minus sign.

    Eg. Comparing 50 with 100, to show: +100%

    Or comparing 50 with 25, to show: -50%

    Is that possible with Excel?

    Thanks.

    Adam

    Let's say the first number is in A1 and the second in B1.
    Enter the following formula in C1:

    =B1/A1-1

    Set the number format for C1 to the following custom format:

    +0%;-0%;0%
