Sheet Summary Won't Count # of Cells with %


I have a sheet that has a column for % complete and I cannot get the formula in my sheet summary to count the # of cells that are 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% complete.

The formula I'm using is =COUNTIF(Percent:Percent, "25"). This seems to work to count any that are 0% but none of the other numbers.

What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Jodi C,

    Percentages are actually expressed as decimals when you are looking to count the instances of a number value occurrence. For example, 25% is equal to 0.25. You can see this if you change the number format of your Percent column. Try rewriting your formula like this: =COUNTIF(Percent:Percent, 0.25).

    Hope this helps!
