## How to count number of “Yes” or “No” answer in Excel?

For example you have a worksheet with “Yes”, “No” or other answers, and you want to count the percentage of these answers one by one. Before counting the answer percentage, you need to know the total cell number of “Yes”, “No” or other answers separately. In this article, we will show you how to count cell number of “Yes” or “No” in Excel.
