# Percentage increase/decrease formula in a Pivot table

Hi!

This is my current formula that I use in my Pivot table:  =(TY - LY)/ABS(LY)

How should I modify it in order to exclude the negative values from both years (TY & LY)

thanks!

=IF(AND(TY>0, LY>0), (TY - LY)/ABS(LY), "")

This will display nothing if TY or LY are negatives.

HTH,
