# when LY -ve amount CY +ve amount Vriable How to make it display +ve % ?

Hi All

when compute variable on net profit , i use to get this issue , this is due to net profit can be +ve and -ve changes.

I have below expression working fine , when LY +ve Value and CY also +Ve value :-

if((column(1)+column(2))=0,0,(if(fabs(column(1))=0,1,column(2) / column(1)-1)))

But when LY -ve amount CY +ve amount How to make it display +ve % , now it display -ve % which is not correct , because lst year lost money and CY make money , logical is +Ve , But in math it will compute -ve .

Now it display -706% (is correct if you manual cal ), how to make it display +706 % , Yet when LY +ve and CY +ve it also able to compute correct % ?

Try this:

fabs(if((column(1)+column(2))=0, 0,(If(fabs(column(1)) = 0, 1, column(2) / column(1)-1))))
