You should use the formula COUNT (Cell1, Cell2), please replace Cell1 and Cell2 for the range of your cells in Excell. You could use too the formula COUNT.IF(Cell1,Cell2,Criterion), Cell1 and Cell2 is the range of cells when can exist an entry.
Example The final formula is like:
COUNT(A1:A5)/COUNT.IF(A1:A5,"=x")*100

To get around this, you can calculate your numbers as percentages first. For example, if you type the formula =10/100 in cell A2, Excel will display the result as 0.1. If you then format that decimal as a percentage, the number will be displayed as 10%, as you 'd expect.Aug 2, 2011

### Create a program that will the salary, no of hours work, the deduction, total deduction and net pay.

The easiest way to do this is to use Excel spreadsheet.
This is what you need to do.
Create a label at the top of each column as detailed.
Add a employee to each row under Name of employee
Then against each employee add the data and the formula in the relevant cell under each column.

The first column - Name of the employee
2nd column - salary rate per hour
3rd column - hours worked
4th column - gross pay (formula = salary rate X hours worked)
5th column - tax deduction
6th column - other deductions
7th column - total deductions (formula = tax deduction + other deduction)
8th column - net pay (formula = gross pay - tax - total deductions)

At the last row you can include a total for Gross salary paid, total Tax collected etc.

Once you have setup this spread sheet make a copy of it and save it as a template.
You can then copy this template for each new financial year so you do not have to create a new one each year, you only need to make minor changes for new employees, rates of pay etc.

Another way to make a salary program is to use Access Database. You need more skills to do this, but it can provide greater reporting capabilities.

### Excel Formula

Yes you can and there are two choices. The simple solution is to label a cell "divide by" and put your number in that filed. Then, by changing only that, your answer (in a separate cell) will be available.
There are more complex solutions -assuming your divide by number had some rhyme and reason that could be put in place but.....try this first and at a later date go back and play. Learning to do that will give you more than a fair amount of Excel expertise....something you may find fairly valuable as you continue on using Excel. FYI...I have developed full blown applications on Excel....it is an excellent tool. Hope this helps....Tango.

### Calculated field in Excel pivot

Count will only work with numbers. So select another box where you want your number and use this formula: =count(x:x) This should give the count number then you will need to find the difference. In another box, use =sum(x-x). This should give you your difference.

If this helps you, please rate me. Thanks, Patty
