percent change

Hello,

 

Could use some help in creating a measure that will properly compute the percent change for the table below.

As you can see, I'm having a problem computing accurate percentages and would appreciate any help I can get.

 

Thank you very much

Re: percent change

@iskruger are you looking for the % change between the years or between the stores compared to the total?

Re: percent change

I'm looking for the percent change between the years. However, there are situations when a location has no reported sales in the previous year because those location(s) weren't opened then. Additionally, I was trying to figure out how to calculate the Total percent change for stores opened both years.

 

Thank you.

Re: percent change

Hello, I believe this will help you:

Growth % = (DIVIDE(SUM(This Year),SUM(Last Year))-1)*100

 

P.S.: You can skip multiplying it by 100 and just format it as a percentage from the Modeling tab.
