Have you tried countif?

= countif(c:c, "Yes")

The "Yes" is CASE SENSITIVE!

You may also have to do a combo:

= count(b:b) - countif(c:c "<>'Yes'")

Wher the 'Yes' is in single quotes and the entire condition is in double quotes.

### I want an formula in excel to find out number of days present per month an perticular worker

Hello this is Baris,
Can you tell me more about this employee. Are you creating an excel spreadsheet to keep record of his days. Are you just getting the numbers from an outside source like a schedule.

To be able to give you an answer I will assume that you have the info already in the same spreadsheet.

Lets say Column A is the days of the month.
Column B is the information column like the hours that the employee worked. If the month has 31 days this is what you need to do.
Click on the cell B32 and type the formula
=count(B1:B31) and press enter. This will count the number off cells which have a value in it in that month.

If you provide me more info we may come up with a better solution. Hope this helps :)

### Countifs

The formula in both versions is the same:

=countif(range,value)

i.e. The below formula will increase its count by one if any of the 18 cells it's checking are equal to 1.
=countif(A1:B9,1)

### Problem with formulas

You may want to try =COUNT(A1:C9) for example. In brackets type the range of cells you want to count and excel will give you the number of cells that contain numbers.
