### I calculated percentage on excel using a formula but still it shows #value?. what do i have do to fix this? please help.

Right Click on cell with mouse and select format cells
then select number . If formula was for example percentage of cell a2 calculated from b2 calculated in c2 then in c2 you put =a2/b2
Then you can use percentage in the number format
or you can go =(a2/b2)*100
Also make the cell width more if a problem.
