I have a program that calculates the difference between a "BEFORE" and an "AFTER" number and represents it as a % Change.  It works great when both numbers are positive.  BUT.... if the BEFORE value is negative and the AFTER value is positive, it does not calculate the result correctly.  Either my formula is wrong or I'm dealing with an anomaly in math......... ;-(

See Attached WS/file.

Thank you in advance!
