percent difference between 2 zero valuesHi, I'm a software developer currently working on a statistics program. I have a series of values per month, and for each month I have to calcultate the percent difference from the preceeding month. Example: #2 20050815 16:04:53
Re: percent difference between 2 zero valuesIf the value of the current month is B and the previous month A, Character is who you are when no one is looking. #3 20050815 16:44:01
