Formula to calculate tasks based on % complete

I have a list of deliverables with a % complete column and I want to calculate the total number of:

completed (at 100%)

in progress (between 1% and 99%)

not started (0%)

I am using the following formula for completed and it is giving me 0 results when I know i have 4 completed

=COUNTIF([% Complete]2:[% Complete]56, "100%")

Any toughs on what I am doing wrong?

    Hi Vanessa,

    Try something like this.

    =COUNTIF([% Complete]2:[% Complete]56, 1)

    Smartsheet looks at the numbers in a column formatted for percentage as values between 0 and 1. You'd need to use decimal values instead for it to work. 

    25% = 0,25 (0.25)

    50% = 0,5 (0.5)

    100% = 1

    Depending on your country/region, you'll need to exchange the comma to a period.

    Did that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
