I have an Excel sheet in this format.
You can see that there are groups of dates, and there is a column
Present with boolean values. I want to find the percentage of
Yes in the
Present field. If this was SQL, I would have done easily. I have a few questions in Excel.
- Is this feasible?
- What kind of formula should I use?
- Should I use macros for these or just formulae would do?
- Will I be able to fill the column automatically, without I merging cells each and every time manually?
I had played around with
SUMIF, but didn’t work for me. Please help. Thanks in advance.
You will need to use one
COUNTIF and one
In the first cell containing the percentage for instance, you could use:
1-May-13 is in A2 and
Yes is in B2.
COUNTIFS uses multiple criteria. Here, it counts only if the date in A1 is
1-May-13 and the value in B2 is
COUNTIF just counts the number of times the date appears.
You can then format the column as a percentage.
It will be difficult I think with the merging and unmerging cells though.
