I'm not 100% sure of the requirement, perhaps this formula in B7 copied across

=(1-B6/B2)*100

Hi Barry,  I don't think this is right as if my sales are £100 and my GP is £60, then my GP % would be 60% but your calculation makes it 40% GP?

But I thought you want the results as shown in your workbook - you have 40 in B7? If you just want GP as a percentage of sales then this formula will give you 40

=100*B6/B2
