RE: percentage growth formula
Thanks for your question.
The formula will involve a subtraction and a division. For example, if:
then the formula is =(Feb value - Jan value)/Feb value
You will need to format the cell containing the formula to display as a percentage as well.
Go to source of a cell
The default setting in Excel is when you double click in a cell it actives the formula in the cell. If you have created a link and want to directly go to that link (say if on another sheet, click on Tools -options and take off the tick for eidt it directly in cell
