I am trying to calculate the percent change between two values.
However in cases where the value = 0  I am getting the divide by zero error.
For example in Cell A1 I have the first value and B1 the second value. In Cell C1 I type the formula:   =(B1-A1)/ABS(A1)  to get the percentage change.   Any ideas on how I can fix this? Thanks.

To determine the percentage change from A1 to B1:

   =IFERROR((B1-A1)/ABS(A1),0)
