# vlookup formula that additioanlly calculates a % of a value

Hi!

Column A sheet 1 has codes and corresponding prices in column B. Column A sheet 2 has the same codes but with different \$\$ (column B). Column C Sheet 1 should have a formula calculating what % of a new price is the old price. I assume it should be a v-lookup formula first to look up a code, but I am not sure how to add a % calculation after that.

thx

try this formula:
=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A1:B8,2,FALSE)),0,Sheet1!B2/VLOOKUP(Sheet1!A2,Sheet2!A1:B8,2,FALSE))

Apply this formula in C2 and drag it...

=(VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!\$A\$2:\$B\$8,2,0)/B2)-1
