    Different Plus/Minus Errors

    Hi there!

    I'm doing a forecast analysis on some data. I want to get the +/- error for a forecasted percentage, but I want to get a different +/- values, so that my forecast is something like 95.2 (+2/-7)%. If it was just +/-7%, then my forecast could be above 100%, not great. Any ideas? Thanks so much for any help!
