    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)

    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.
