Inverse Percentage


How do I invert a percentage in Smartsheet?

For example if I have a countif formula that calculates 2% in a score column but I want it to show 98%.

    Hi @Sidonia Posteuca

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    IF(COUNTIF([Example Column]:[Example Column], 1) > 0,
     1 - COUNTIF([Example Column]:[Example Column], 1) / COUNT([Example Column]:[Example Column]))

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
