Stumped!
Trying to calculate a % for where a particular column is filled in. We have various blanks (lining up with headings) that I need to involve in the calculation. Here's my formula:
=ROUND((COUNTIF([Common Control  Client Comments]:[Common Control  Client Comments],<>"")COUNTIF([Ctrl odr]:[Ctrl odr],""))/COUNTIF([Ctrl odr]:[Ctrl odr],<>"")*100,2)&"% Complete"
So I am trying to find out how many lines in the [Common Control  Client Comments] have something in them and then subtract heading rows (using the [Ctrl odr] column to identify those) and then divide result of that by the non blank rows in [Ctrl odr] column and turn it into a percentage with 2 decimal places.
All I get is #unparseable.
I have also tried using isblank and not(isblank). Same result.
The answer is probably staring me in the face but I am currently blind to it.
BTW I did check the column names are correct.
Thanks in advance

Two things:
1) There's a <> missing in the second numerator term  COUNTIF([Ctrl odr]:[Ctrl odr],"") should be COUNTIF([Ctrl odr]:[Ctrl odr],<>"")
2) join the value and the "% Complete" with + instead of &
This works for me:
=ROUND((COUNTIF([Common Control  Client Comments]:[Common Control  Client Comments], <>"")  COUNTIF([Ctrl odr]:[Ctrl odr], <>"")) / COUNTIF([Ctrl odr]:[Ctrl odr], <>"") * 100, 2) + "% Complete"
But it doesn't give "two decimal places" since you're multiplying by 100. But I think this is what you mean.
Good luck!

Awesome, thanks :)
