# 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!
