Hi Dan
I assumed this wasn't a crossreferenced sheet
=IF(UPPER([Your column name]@row) = "Y", 2, 0)
The UPPPER function will force all entries to be viewed as capitalized letters. The false function will default to a blank cell if we left the last comma and zero out of the equation. As written, any false will return a zero.
