# Calculate Percentage Based On The Number

Jul 17, 2008
I am working on a spreadsheet which has lots of data in it. I have a Column i.e. Checked out and on each cell entered an X Mark indicating that a device has been checked out.

Since this Checked Out Column goes all the way down to > 1000 cells. Is there a way for us to make a formula and calculate percentage based on the number of X's that are entered and tell as that out of 1000 cells, the X's are 65% and so the blank cells would have to be checked to complete the list?

I have a form in work which acts as a tick sheet for tasks complete on a construction site. When a task is complete I copy & paste from a key of dates i.e. week ending 11.05.15, this allows me to see what week a task was complete.

Generally I only marked off tasks which were 100% complete but my manager wants me to enter the % of the task complete also, i.e. 80% in the box.

So my question is how can I have the formula assume that any box with a date & shading is 100% and any cell with a number i.e. 80 is only 80% complete. I need it to monitor around 150 cells and give me the overall % complete based on what i have discussed.

I am trying to create a formula to calculate the total number of calls that I need to receive to hit the target % if the current % is less than the target %. I have tried various formulae, but not having much luck. Also, it shouldn't show me any negative figures.

A = Departments

B = Calls Dropped

C = Calls Received

D = Current % (C/F)

E = Target %

F = Total (B + C)

G = Required (When I enter B, C and E, the rest needs to calculated automatically. G should tell me the amount of calls I need to receive in order to achieve the target specified in E)

Departments

Calls DroppedCalls ReceivedCurrent %Target %TotalCalls Required to hit TargetDept 1

21083.33%95.00%12 Dept 2

067100.00%90.00%67 Total

27791.67%95.00%79

I have a list of YES or NO answers in a sheet. I want to calculate the % of YES in the list. E.G. if there are 100 cells in total and 25 of them say YES and the remaining 75 say NO, the percentage should be 25%.

I am trying to set up a spreadsheet where all the sales manager will have to do is input the number of cars sold to determine what the total amount of commission will be for a salesperson. I have something set up so far, but need the spread sheet to do an if/then type thing where it will search the table, and produce the dollar amount for the number of cars sold based on the scale and the number in the # cars sold cell.

I've tried conditional sum, IF, goal seek, and all kinds of stuff to no avail. The spreadsheet is attached.

I have a workbook that I've built for a project. I've attached a sample workbook. What I'm trying to do, for the entire sheet or workbook if possible, is turn any Cell with a percentage of 30% to 49% yellow and any cell with a percentage of 50% or more Red. I would also like to move the ID's of the variable cells, for example Id number 9922, to the cells beside the description of the rows, Affected would be an example, if the information contained in the same row as the ID meets with a set of variables.

For example I only want the ID's moved if they correspond with IDsub 1-25. One more thing, the people who will be using this spreadsheet will be copying data from a website when it is imported it does not insert the values as numbers. I would like to format the cells, in example workbook they would be any of the cells labeled ID IDsub Variable or Number, so that anything put in that cell will automatically be converted to a number.

I should also probably add that the formatting will be done on approximately 80 rows a sheet with 47 sheets.

I need a formula that will calucalte the monthly total based on the following conditions:

Col A = Yearly Cost

Col B = The number of the month when the costs are starting (1=Jan etc)

Col C = The duration or the number of months for which the costs are to spread

Col D is Year 2013 with the months across columns D-O. Row 1 above those columns shows the month's corresponding number.

Right now I have =IF($B3<=D$1,$A3/$C3,0) however if my start month is 1 and my duration is 5, I need the costs to stop after May. I've attached a sample file. Calculate based on start month and duration.xlsx

How to create a spreadsheet with what I think will be a very simple formula?

If date in B2 - date in A2 is 1 or less days, put a 1 in cell C2.

If date in B2 - date in A2 is 7 or less days but more than 1, put a 2 in cell C2.

If date in B2 - date in A2 is 30 or less days but more than 7, put a 3 in cell C2.

If date in B2 - date in A2 is 90 or less days but more than 30, put a 4 in cell C2.

If date in B2 - date in A2 is 91 days or more, put a 5 in cell C2.

OR

Another, maybe simpler, way of saying it is:

If date in B2 - date in A2 is 1 or less days, put a 1 in cell C2.

If date in B2 - date in A2 is 2-7 days, put a 2 in cell C2.

If date in B2 - date in A2 is 8-30 days, put a 3 in cell C2.

If date in B2 - date in A2 is 31-90 days, put a 4 in cell C2.

If date in B2 - date in A2 is 91 days or more, put a 5 in cell C2.

I am trying to create on excel order form. I want customers to be able to input the item # (a range from 1 to 12), then I want the to price to be calculated based on the item # they input.

For example. If they choose item #2 in A6 then the price in F6 will be recorded as $8.00. (the price would change for each item # they input).

the formula I started out with was:

=IF((A6=1),"$8.00")

this worked for me if A6 did in fact equal 1.

So I tried adding this equation to the formula.

=IF((A6=1),"$8.00")*OR((A6=2),"$7.00")....this would continue on. I even pressed "command return" after the statement as if I was entering an array formula.

I got the error #VALUE!

I am attempting to calculate a dollar value that is based on a number of units. Each unit has a different dollar value depending on how many units there are. for instance,

if the spreadsheet reports one unit, then I need to return $45

if the spreadsheet reports two units, then I need to return $65 or 1st unit at 45 and 2nd unit at $20.

if the spreadheet reports three units, then I need to return $ 75 or 1st unit at $45, 2nd at $20 and 3rd at $10

all subsequent units 4 and up need to add $10 per additional unit.

I work in IT Service company and we need to calculate our workload based on a number of devices in our scope.

Say, somebody wants to add 300 Windows Servers to our service desk. We know that each Win Server would need 1 Person on duty to manage. So ideally we would just multiply 1*300 and get the amount of people we need.

Problem is that because the service is quite similar for each of these servers, we dont really need a dedicated person for each device so I want to make every additional device consume 20% less workload than the previous one.

In our case it would be:

1 Server = 1 Person

2 Servers = 1.8 People

3 Servers ~ 2.5 People

I would like to calculate the week number of the month based on a date.

Now my days would only include working weeks (Monday - Friday).

Supposed the date is 12/31/2012:

M

31-Dec

T

1-Jan

W

2-Jan

TH

3-Jan

F

4-Jan

Since it only occupies 1 day of the workweek, then it will be considered as Week 1 of January. If the date is 1/28/2012:

M

28-Jan

T

29-Jan

W

30-Jan

TH

31-Jan

F

1-Feb

It will be considered as Week 5 of January since it occupies 4 days of the working week. If the date is 4/29/2013:

M

29-Apr

T

30-Apr

W

1-May

TH

2-May

F

3-May

It will be considered as Week 1 of May since it occupies only 2 days of the working week.

Basically if the date's month occupies 3 or more of the working days of the workweek then it will be considered as part of that month's working week. Is this possible with formulas? I tried to explain it the best I can.

I have a column say column B for example that has a list of dates in the format dd/mm/yyyy. I would like a summary at the top of the columns to state how many dates there are for the current month. But I wondered if this was possible based on the TODAY() function or similar. Thus the user would not have to change anything.

So for example at the start of the month it may state 14. Half way through the month down to 6 and at the end of the month 0 for example.

I can't seem to make SumIF or Vlookup do what I want here.

I have a table like that below. I also have a cell on the same sheet called CurrentPeriod in which a user can enter a period number corresponding with one of the values in the first column.

If someone enters 3 in "CurrentPeriod" I want to sum the first three values in the "Actual" column and then divide the result by the sum of the first three values in the "Target" column (effectively giving a percentage of target at the end of period 3)

Period Target Actual %Target

1 74 68 91.9%

2 81 71 87.7%

3 76 87 114.5%

4 76 68 89.5%

5 71 89 125.4%

6 69 81 117.4%

I have attached a file with both a sample section of data on the first sheet and the outcome I would like on the second sheet... I would do it all manually but there are over 200,000 rows in the actual file.

The macro needs to calculate the percentage of sale for each reference number within each part number and move down to the next part number and do the same until it reaches the bottom.

I have a worksheet that has all weekday dates in column 1 and values in column 2. I want to create a 30-day moving average based on the last (non-zero) value in the column 2.

Since every month has a different amount of days, I want it to search the date that has the last value (since I don't get a chance to update it daily) and go back thirsty days from that date and give an average of all the column 2 values skipping and values that are null or zero.

code needed to be able to automatically calculate the percentage needed from one year to the next. I simply need it to automatically create a third column each time the copy old data button is pressed, and I need the column to have the percent increase ((current year - past year)/current year). Hopefully you can understand what I am aiming for. I have the current code below, and I will attach a compressed and stripped version of my workbook.

In the attched sheet, I am wanting to draw data from the worksheet "On-Off" Array $AI$14:$AJ$91 into column AA, while at the same time choosing the closest match to the time. I have managed to get the closest matching time into column AC.

What I am having trouble with is now calculating the number of staff on that break time (column Z) against the number of staff rostered on at that stage "On-Off" (column AJ). I thought it would be a simple division and format as a percentage, however something in it using the extract from the "On-Off" sheet is stopping me, and I cannot figure it out.

I have a row of numbers from 1 to 26 in cells A1 to Z1 representing numbers

'chosen' at random by 500 unique people.

I have another row of numbers representing the 'frequency' that the

aforementioned number was chosen in cells A2 to Z2.

Example:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 ...

10 4 16 9 23 20 61 13 18 43 17 ...

Is there a formula that I could use to calculate the percentage (0%-100%)

that each number was chosen?

Cell J18 will hold the formula.Range C18:I18 will have values.

C18 will have a value for today,D18 will get a value tomorrow,E18 will get a value 1 day after tomorrow etc..etc..

J18 formula - =sum(C18:I18)/7

If I only has a value in J18 then it will divide that single number by 7.......can a formula only divide by entries in cells....if I have 1 entry then it divides by 1,if I have 4 entries then it divides by 4 etc..etc until thee is 7 entries.

What I have is four columns with data. First column name second column number third column name fourth a number. Trying to get the total of the numbers for the names. So the first and third columns have names in them and they can be in each column or just once in either. I need to get a total column with all the unique names and then their corresponding number (added together if they are in both columns) to display the name and total. The names could be duplicated in each column as we (hopefully) have a lot of the same people coming week in week out.

What it is being used for is a two week and four week revolving attendance. I have a daily sheet one that I am using data filter unique values and then a countif to show me their attendance for the week. Putting it into a totals page sheet with week 1 week 2 etc.

So looking for a way to get all the unique names and their corrorsponding cell value added together to show the persons attendance for two weeks and then the month.

In my spreadsheet (testing.xls) I have a chart to mark the quality of a phone call based on a list of 8elements being judged. I have a likert scale for the quality result for each element, say for example 5 for highest, 3 for average, 1 for the poor, 0 for very poor and NA for an element which is not counted.

At the bottom of my table I have a cell where it would work out the % based on the outcome of the result from the different cells being ticked, what would i need to do to have excel work this out for me? Please bare in mind that if there is for example 1 element out of the 8 elements marked as NA the result would be divided 7 instead of 8.

There are several test results for each test. I want to calulate the percentage of failures for each test. I have selected Test for Row Labels. I cannot figure out how to calulate the percentage. Basically, the formula equates to =SUM(Failures)/COUNTA(Test). In other words, for each test add the failures and divide by the total number of results for that test.

I have a list of group ID codes, which contain 1 or more product codes within them.

Some product codes contain an "alternative" value (the actual value is irrelevant) and others do not. See example below

Group ID

Product Code

Alternative

56381

240027

160380

[Code] .....

Ultimately what I need to achieve is a percentage of how many product codes, within each group ID, contain an alternative.

So for the example above, group ID 56381 would have 50% codes with alternatives.

By counting the occurrences of a group ID and whether 1 particular code has an alternative I have calculated individual percentages against the size of the group e.g. product code 240027 (given a value of 1) divided by the total number of codes in the group (4), returns 0.25. Obviously doing this across the whole group would give my result (0.5 or 50%)

However some groups contain over 100 codes and the spreadsheet is 40K rows!
