I have 3 columns (A, B and C) in Excel 2010. I need to put text YES in the C column if A is less than 25% of B and text NO if it is more than 25%. What is the best way to do it?

You can use this formula:

=IF(A1<(B1/4),"Yes","No")

I might need to change the percentage once in a while to a different value, let say 37%. How would that look like?

If you want to hard code it you can use:

=IF(A1<(B1*0.37),"Yes","No")

Or, you can use a reference cell:

=IF(A1<(B1*D1),"Yes","No")

Just put your .37 in cell D1. A little more flexibility that way.
