Ignoring Blank Cells

How do I make this formula ignore blank cells? I want it to total the percent of YES cells to NO in a range.

=COUNTIFS(CHILDREN(), OR(@cell = "YES", @cell = "No aplica")) / COUNTIFS(CHILDREN(), OR(@cell = "", @cell <> ""))

    Hi @Alishia Topper,

    Try this:


    This will count how many children say "Yes" out of all the children that are not blank (or counting the total of both Yes and No). Is that what you're looking for?

    Here's some information on COUNTIF and on CHILDREN.

    Let me know if this works for you!
