    Formula to give maximum 100% even when result of formula exceeds 100%

    I need help to understand how to enter a formula to give a maximum result of 100%

    For example if sales target = 100,000 and sales achievement entered= 125'000 then I need the percent of sale achieved to show 100% not 125%

    If the sale achieved entered= 75,000 then I need the same cell to show 75% achieved....

    I'm sure their must be an easy way of doing this but I keep getting errors in the formula so any help would be appreciate.

    hi AmirOmari, welcome to the forum. assuming sales target is in A1 & achievement in B1, try:
    =MIN(B1/A1,1)

    format to %
