Percentage Difference Shows Minus value in plus

Hi Everyone I hope you all are fine. So reference to the visuals. I have calculated a % diff between Budgeted sale 2021 and actual sale 2021. It shows the correct percentage values but in red box it should mention the percentage in minus not in positive. Kindly let me know If someone can help me out.
Thanks in advance.

I suppose your [Diff] measure calculates [2021]-[Budgeted sale 2021]? If you want to ge this as a percentage simply include that in your numerator so %Diff = DIVIDE([Diff],[2021]) or DVIDE([2021]-[Budgeted sale 2021],[2021]).

I hope this helps to solve your issue and if it does consider accpeting this as a solution and giving the post a thumbs up!

SO I Have tried this before. but I was confused if the values are correct or not because i want to show the percentage difference that is => the budgeted sale 2021 for actual sale 2021.



Now I am a bit confused about your question. The numbers seem to be correct? 17 089 is 31,92% of 53 540. I guess you could add conditional formatting to your original values to show red arrow if the percentage is more than 100%. This would display the cases when your budget is larger than actual values.
