I'm not sure how you want it displayed but you can get a text value like this

in A1 = 4400
in B1 = 27000000

then this formula in c1

="1/"&TEXT(B1/A1/100,0)&" of 1%"

so result would look like

1/61 of 1%

regards, barry

Wouldn't that be: 16,296/100,000,000 of 1 %
A more manageable (rounded) number would be 1.6/100 of 1% (one point six hundredths of one percent)
Are you looking for a way to programmatically calculate this using Excel?

You wouldnt happen to know how to convert that to use in Access woudl you?
I have the following that I converted based on your formula that I want to use in Access but I dont think "TEXT" function works in access:

="1/" & Text([[tblLetterOfCredit].[Amount]/[tblfees.Amount]/100,0) & " of 1%"

Try CSTR instead of Text

="1/" & CStr([[tblLetterOfCredit].[Amount]/[tblfees.Amount]/100,0) & " of 1%"

I think that should handle it.

rspahitz:  I tried it but had an error that said wrong number of arguments.  I dont see where the error is.  I ended up using ="1/" & Round([tblLetterOfCredit.Amount]/[tblfees.Amount]/100,0) & " of 1%"

oh, sorry, I think it was that last ",0" should not have been there...round is probably better anyway
...and you really didn't need CStr function since it will automatically convert to a string because you used the "&" for concatenation.
