# Rounding up to nearest percent

edited 12/09/19

I am using this formula in a cell:

=100*(COUNTIFS([FW % Complete]13:[FW % Complete]24, 1) / COUNT([FW % Complete]13:[FW % Complete]24)) + "%"

I would like to know how to make the percentage round to the nearest percentage. Right now I am getting 94.11765%. Thanks!

You would wrap the COUNTIFS/COUNT portion in a ROUND statement.

=100*ROUND(COUNTIFS([FW % Complete]13:[FW % Complete]24, 1) / COUNT([FW % Complete]13:[FW % Complete]24)) + "%"

• Thank you. It is rounding to 100 and I need it to round to the nearest percent. So since it's 94.17765, I need it to round to 94 or even 95 if that is easier. Thanks!

My apologies. I forgot to add 2 to the ROUND to tell it to round to the nearest hundredth. Basically we tell it to round to the nearest second decimal point then multiply by 100.

=100*ROUND(COUNTIFS([FW % Complete]13:[FW % Complete]24, 1) / COUNT([FW % Complete]13:[FW % Complete]24), 2) + "%"

.

You could also wrap the entire calculation before adding the percent symbol in a ROUND function and leave it to round to the nearest whole number.

=ROUND(100*(COUNTIFS([FW % Complete]13:[FW % Complete]24, 1) / COUNT([FW % Complete]13:[FW % Complete]24))) + "%"

• That worked! Thank you!!
