# Percentage of task completion question

1. ## Percentage of task completion question

Hello - I found this site essentially by the title of this thread. It got me close - but not quite. I am trying something simpler.

I have a task list and one column is called Completed (yes/no) and the total number of cells in that column is 182. I need to figure out how to list the total % complete.

So far, I used =COUNTIF(C2:C182,"Yes") to get me the total number of completes - that works and gives me 117. I just need to finish the formula to give the correct completion percentage.

Any suggestions?

Thank You!

Tried and it gave me "1". Formatted as percentage gives me 100%. Not quite...

When I run a test I get a percentage based on the formula I provided - it counts the number of cells within C2:C182, then divides by the total number of populated cells within C2:C182. If you still have an error, try highlighting the COUNTA(C2:C182) portion of your formula and press F9. What does that evaluate to?

=COUNTIF(C2:C182, "Yes") / ROWS(C2:C182)

Thank you shg - that worked!

You're welcome.

mcmahobt's would work equally well if all the cells contained something (e.g., "yes", "no", "soon", "never"). It would work better than mine if empty cells were irrelevant to the calculation.
