count decision formula

Hi all

I have a sheet that using the decision symbols, can anyone help me with the formula that counts the number of Yes, No, Hold.  I would be happy if there was a way of just counting the number of the green yes  

Many thanks

    If you double click on the cell containing any symbol you will be able to see the text that occupies that cell and is replaced by the symbol. In the case of the DECISION symbols, you will want to use the words, "Yes" for green, "Hold" for yellow, and "No" for red. 

    Your countif statement for Green would look something like this: =Countif(Seen:Seen, "Yes") 

    To count Holds, simply replace "Yes" with "Hold", and to count No's - replace "Yes" with "No".

    If you are wanting to count a different column than the seen column then you can replace it with the column name. If the range you are counting contains whitespace or ends in a number you will want to surround your column name in brackets. =Countif([Column Name]:[Column Name], "Yes")
