# Percentage of the Year Formula

Good Afternoon!

I'm currently constructing some calculations and I would like some help with a formula that will show the "percentage of year" that a goal will achieve if completed by it's due date.

Example:

• Project Due Date = 6/1/21

If the project is completed on time (due date), then that project will have achieved goal attainment for 50% of the year (6 months of being completed for the remaining year).

Any help in creating a formula for this would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Luke

I was able to figure it out based on the input you gave Steven, thank you very much!

The correct formula ended up being:

=(DATE(YEAR([Project ETBR]@row), 12, 31) - [Project ETBR]@row) / 365

If project due date was 1/1/21 then above formula would show 100%.

If project due date was 12/31/21 then above formula would show 0%.

Luke

Hi Luke,

Assuming your project due dates are in a column named "Project Due Dates" and the the formula you are writing is in the same row as the dates, you can use the following formula to calculate the fraction:

=([Project Due Date]@row - DATE(YEAR([Project Due Date]@row), 1, 1)) / 365

Then format the column/cell with the formula as percentage.

Hi Steven,

Thanks for helping out with this!

That worked to a point, but I think the percentage calculation is a bit off.

For example, the formula provided gives me a result of 0% with a Project Due Date of 1/1/21, when it should be 100%, since it will have been completed for 100% of the year .

Does that make any sense?
