    Unhappy Using Countif formula in a Pivot Table


    Im working with a large data spreadsheet that has Yes and No answers in different columns. There are blanks within the selection too.
    I need to calculate only the Yes.
    I have tried using the filters in the Pivot Table field list and they are not working.
    So now i'm trying to add a COUNTIF formula in the Calculated Fields section.
    The formula I'm using is =Countif('Time limit extension'="yes") and i get the answer "too few."
    What should I be using in the formula to get the calculated field to work? I have search the whole forum and I haven't found an answer that can help me.

    Please HELP!!!

    You can use the GETPIVOTDATA function to extract information from a pivot table.

    "May the fleas of a thousand camels infest the crotch of the person who screws up your day and may their arms be too short to scratch..."

    Use code tags when posting your VBA code: [code] Your code here [/code]

    To best describe or illustrate your problem you would be better off attaching a dummy workbook, the workbook should contain the same structure and some dummy data of the same type as the type you have in your real workbook - so, if a cell contains numbers & letters in this format abc-123 then that should be reflected in the dummy workbook.

    If needed supply a before and after sheet in the workbook so the person helping you can see what you are trying to achieve.

    Doing this will ensure you get the result you need!
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
