i'm trying to use this formula, but some how it keeps gettings stuck on the dividing part.
=AANTAL.ALS(K3:K85;"yes")/AANTALARG(K3:K85,"yes")

AANTAL.ALS= COUNTIF
AANTALARG= COUNTA
what is wrong with the formula?

I am want to use a function that calculate a rate of 1 to 5 using a percentage of each cell if the answer is yes. Rate = (country x 25%)+(role x 25%) + (age x 25%) + ( risk x 25%)

Hello,

I am looking to get a percentage of cells populated in a column. I have built a tracking sheet for a project where associates will enter their initials into the cells to show they have completed that task. I would like to show a percentage of tasks completed if that makes sense?

Thanks,

Hi Mandy,

How do you use this formula =COUNTIF(B2:B15,"Yes")/COUNTA(B2:B15)

But to fetch data across multiple Sheets? For example I am looking for the word 'Yes' in a second sheet and third sheet but would like to populate the result on the first sheet.

Thank
Jas

Hello, Jas
If you want to get the percentage of Yes from multiple sheets, may be the below formula can help you:

=(COUNTIF(Sheet2!B2:B15,"Yes")+COUNTIF(Sheet3!B2:B15,"Yes"))/(COUNTA(Sheet2!B2:B15)+COUNTA(Sheet3!B2:B15))

But, if you just need to put the result in another sheet, please apply the below formula:
=COUNTIF(Sheet2!B2:B15,"Yes")/COUNTA(Sheet2!B2:B15)

Hello, Dan,
As you said, the formula does not work correctlly in a table format, so, you need to use it in a normal range. Please don't put the formula next to the table, locate it beyond the table, as below screenshot shown:

How do you use the countif when you are trying 3 different criteria to equal a percentage.
Yes/No/NA
NA- should not impact the total combined percentage of Yes/No Answers. Using as an excel audit tool.

=IF(A23="","",COUNTIF(E23:I23,"Yes")/(COUNTIF(E23:I23,"Yes")+COUNTIF(E23:I23,"NO")))

This formula is still decreasing total score when N/A is selected in cell.

Hello Brandy,
Thanks for your message. In B1:B10, there are 3 different data: Yes/No/NA. To calculate the percentage of the number of Yes of the total number of Yes and No, please input the formula: =IF(B1="","",COUNTIF(B1:B10,"Yes")/(COUNTIF(B1:B10,"Yes")+COUNTIF(B1:B10,"NO"))). You will get the correct result.
Sincerely,
Mandy

this worked HOWEVER, when I do a sort the % does not change with the sorted data. How can I get the % to change when I sort?

Hello Nataile,
Glad to help. When you sort the data, you need to change the range in the Countif formula to absolute. Otherwise, the results will be wrong. For example, the first formula in the artical should be changed to: =COUNTIF(\$B\$2:\$B\$15,"Yes")/COUNTA(B2:B15) . Please have a try.

Sincerely,
Mandy

Trying to find a way to use the function

=COUNTIF(F3:F17,F21:F35,P3:P17,P21:P35,F39:F53,P39:P53,Z3:Z17,Z21:Z35,Z39:Z53,AJ3:AJ17,AJ21:AJ35,AJ39:AJ53,"No")/COUNTA(F3:F17,F21:F35,P3:P17,P21:P35,F39:F53,P39:P53,Z3:Z17,Z21:Z35,Z39:Z53,AJ3:AJ17,AJ21:AJ35,AJ39:AJ53)
However, it says I can only have 2 arguments. Is there another function I have to use for this many ranges?

Any help is much appreciated!
