    This has been bugging me for nights. I do not know what function to use or
    formula to total the number of 'yes' answers in a column using Microsoft
    Excel. I only know how to total numbers in Excel but not the text. I am
    making a marketing report of clients whom we called and one of the colums has
    a heading of Enrollment. Answers to this column can either be Yes or No.
    How do i total the number of 'Yes' or enrolled clients at the end of the
    column. PLEASE HELP!! SOS!!!

    You're asking in the wrong place. This newsgroup is not for Excel;
    it's for a different program, Microsoft Access. Please scroll down the
    list of subject areas and repost in an Excel support area.

    You should be able to use the IF() function to get a 1 for "yes" and a
    0 for "no" answers, and sum that up. See the online help for IF.

    Use the COUNTIF function in Excel: =COUNTIF(CellRange,"Yes")
    where CellRange is the range of cells you want to include in your search.
    Check for complete details in Excel help.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
