Percentage Formula for 2 Summary Fields

I have a sheet with a few "countifs" summary fields. I would like to add a summary field that calculates the percentage of 2 summary fields.


Summary Field 1: Permits Occurring November

Summary Field 2: Permits Occurring November with No Photos

Both summary fields are returning the correct value. I want to add a summary field that calculates the percentage of Permits occurring in November that have no photos.

    I used the countifs formula of one summary field and divided by the other summary field multiplied by 100 and it seems to work, but for some reason I feel that is a hokey workaround.

    =COUNTIFS([Permit Start Date]:[Permit Start Date], IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = 11, [Permit Start Date]:[Permit Start Date], IFERROR(YEAR(@cell), 0) = 2020) / [Occurring November '20 No Photos]# * 100

    The bold section is the actual contifs formula for one of my summary fields. The non bold is the division by the actual summary field.

    I think a cleaner way of doing it would be to simply divide the actual summary fields and then multiply by 100.

    I just found the number formatting for percentage that eliminates having to multiply by 100.

    You can just divide the summary fields. Instead of putting a row number in the reference put the # symbol after the name of the field. Or just click on the other summary field after typing in the = in the result field.
