Many companies or business sectors keep their important information in an Excel workbook. They have to perform numerous operations according to their requirements. The sales sector stores the price records for different products in the worksheet. And a lot of time, they have to evaluate the price difference in percentage. The percentage format gives a better understanding of the price changes. The manual calculation for each of the products is an inefficient and tiresome process. In this article, weâ€™ll show you the easy and effective methods to calculate the price increase percentage in Excel.

## How to Calculate Price Increase Percentage in Excel: 3 Easy Ways

This article will show the price increment in a percentage format. So, the new price of the products will be greater than the previous one. To illustrate, weâ€™ll use a sample dataset as an example. For instance, the following dataset has 4 products, their old and new prices. Now, youâ€™ll see 3 different procedures to determine the percentage increase in price.

### 1. Calculate Price Increase Percentage Manually with Simple Formula

In an Excel worksheet, we can create formulas according to our needs using different cell values. We will get the increased price by subtracting the previous price from the new one. But, these values don’t give a clear concept of comparison among all the products. So, itâ€™s necessary to convert them into a percentage format. Thatâ€™s why the subtracted result needs to be divided by the previous price and then multiplied by 100. Keeping this in mind, weâ€™ll generate a simple formula for calculating the price increase percentage. Therefore, follow the steps below to carry out the operation.

**STEPS:**

- First, select cell
**E5**. - Then, type the formula below.

`=((D5-C5)/C5)*100`

- After that, press
**Enter**to return the value.

- Use
**AutoFill**to expand the formula and get the percentage increase in the price of all the products. - Thus, youâ€™ll get the desired percentage differences.

**STEPS:**

- Select range
**E5:E8**. - Now, go to the
**Home tab.** - Next, click the
**%**(**Percentage**) symbol which youâ€™ll find in the**Number section.**

- Afterward, choose cell
**E5**to type the formula.

`=(D5-C5)/C5`

**Enter**. - Then, use the
**AutoFill tool.** - As a result, itâ€™ll return the next values.

**Module box.**

```
Sub PriceIncrease()
Dim output As Integer
Dim i As Integer
For i = 5 To 8
output = ((Cells(i, 4).Value - Cells(i, 3).Value) / Cells(i, 3).Value) * 100
Cells(i, 5).Value = output & "%"
Next i
End Sub
```

- Next, save the code and the file.
