moderated Excel Formula
Steve & Shannon Cook <cookcafe@...>
Hi All,
Using Excel 2016, Windows 10 and the current version of JAWS. I have an Excel sheet in column A I have the task a person must perform. In Column B I will answer yes or no if they can perform the task. Here is my issue, I want to create a formula at the bottom of column B to determine if they answered yes to 80% of the questions. I would greatly appreciate your assistance!

Hi Steve, Sorry, i'm French, then I don't know exact function names in English. But i'll try to guide to the right path: To get the number of "yes" from column B the formula is something
like that =nb.if(b2:b10;"yes") where b2:b10 is the range of rows you want to sum and "yes" is what you want to sum. Then, to get the total number of tasks that are in column A this is: =sub.total(3;a:a)1 : here i'm not sure about the name but you may find it from the Math category. Then fi you want a percentage this is first divided by second as follows: =nb.if(b2:b10;"yes") / (sub.total(3;a:a)1)
Hope that helps anyway Tanguy

Let’s say you have Yes or no in cells B2 to B100. In cell B101, or wherever you wish, type the formula, CountIf(B2:B100,”Yes”). This will give you the number of cells with “Yes” in them. Then, in B102, or whoever you wish, type the formula, =CountA(B2:B100) Note the letter “A” after “Count” in the above formula. This will give you the total number of cells in column B that have data. Now, to calculate the percentage of cells with “Yes” in them, in cell B103, or wherever, type the formula, =B101/B102 You are dividing the number of “Yes” by the total number of cells with data. You will get a number like 0.67 or something like that. Press CTRL + 1 while in that cell and change the number formatting to Percentage, choose the number of decimal places you wish to show, and tab to OK. Hope this helps. Russell




Van Lant, Robin
I agree with Russell’s approach. That is exactly how I would do it. Technically you can combine both of the formulas into one cell, but I tend to like to show the results of each count in a different cell.

I’m not sure why Russell’s instructions didn’t work for me, but I did the following and it worked. In b101: =COUNTIF(B2:B100,"Yes") IN b102, =COUNTA(B2:B100) In b103, =B101/B102
To test this, I put a Yes in b2 and No in b100. I got 1 as the result of yes’s, 2 in the result for number of cells with data in b102, and .50 in b103 which then switching the number type to percent, got 50.00. I did not bother changing the decimal places from the default.

said that, right quote. the quotes are rarely referred to as curly quotes. the left quote is actually like or close to a smaller left parenthesis with a water droplet on the top half of the symbol pointing down, and the right quote is a smaller version of the right parenthesis with a water droplet at the bottom half of the symbol pointing up. in both symbols, the water droplet is a part of the left or right small parenthesis. the concept is, the left quote marks the opening to what someone said, and the right quote is the closing of what someone said.

I think I have “smart quotes” in my instructions. I typed the instructions from Mail on my iMac, and, when I read your quotes VoiceOver reads Quote yes quote and in my instructions, VoiceOver reads right double quote Yes right double quote. Yes, it reads right double quote for both! :) Thanks Mario for catching the differences, and apology Richard! Russell

You will find too, that if you search for books with an apostrophe in the title, the smart single quote, which is supposed to be the apostrophe won't return any results.

On my iMac there's a setting in Keyboard settings to use Smart Quotes and Dashes. It's either checked or unchecked. If it's checked, when you type a quote, it's automatically changed to a Smart Quote. Not sure how to do this in Windows... I think it's a setting within Outlook. Thanks, Russell

formula wasn't working. but the quotes that surrounded the word Yes in your response are straight quotes. if they are smart quotes, JAWS would say left quote followed by the quote followed by saying right quote. if JAWS just says quote followed by the quote followed by quote, those are straight quotes. hope it's clearer.

It was just that in your first response, you didn't say whose formula had the smart quotes, but Russell clarified that his Mac was set to use smart quotes, which he has now turned off. It would be nice if Jaws said something different when it encounters smart quotes, but it doesn't.
