The C1 column contains percentages, eg. "1,80%" while C2 contains rational
numbers, eg. "0,70".

I need to multiple C1 x C2, but Calc displays "#NAME?".

What should I do to perform this operation?

Thank you.

This is what I did. I right clicked the A of column A and selected Format cells. I selected percentage. Then I used this procedure to format Column B as a number with 2 decimal places. I entered 1.25 in cell A1 (1.25%) and entered 80 in cell B1 (80.00). In cell C1 I entered "=A1*B1. Cell C1 shows 1 as the answer. I'm not sure what the error is, but I will suggest something. Have you formatted your C1 and C2 columns correctly? I noticed another thing. When I format both columns as text and enter 1.25% in A1 and 80.00 in B1, I still get 1 as my answer.
