Calculating % complete in Excel Part 1

I'm trying to calculate percentage complete, this is one of many percent completes but I will break out my questions to give out the points in fairness.

Step 1:
If column F is "Closed" then on column L = 100%
But if it is "Open" on column F then the calculation should be Column K divided by Column J at column L= 69%

Side Note:  The data  is linked to an access database so it refreshes everyday

If column J is for example 100 and column K is 10 then it should be 90%.  Column k is the difference of J.

=IF(F2="Closed",100%,IF(K2=J2, 0%, (J2-K2)/J2))

in column L, try:


Open in new window

if that column was pulled from database, it would be easier if you can apply that formula into your SQL query.

Thanks Ryan,

One thing I failed to mention....if the qty orderd is for example 182 and the qty open is 182 then technically that is 0% because it's still open.  If both column J and Column K is the same then it should be 0%

But the formula works great when when its Closed in column F

if i understand you correctly, try this instead:
=IF(F2="Closed",100%,IF(K2=J2, 0%, K2/J2))

Open in new window

My deep's working great...and my fault for not being concise.  If column J is for example 100 and column K is 10 then it should be 90%.  Column k is the difference of J.
