    IF Formula not working - need to return "NO" if cell is 1% greater or "YES" if less 1%

    I was using the following formula:

    =IF(A1>(b1*1.01),"NO","YES")

    This works fine if the variance is greater than 1% on the plus side (for tolerance levels), however, if the variance is greater than 1% on the negative side, my formula doesn't work.

    Any suggestions on how to edit?

    Try to use =abs() so the calculation all will be (+)

    =if(or(a1>b1*1.01,a1<b1*0.99),"no","yes") no that seems wrong hmm
