# Calculating Percentage based on drop down list.

#### emiliaw.

##### New Member
Hello,

I have created a spreadsheet in Excel with several different columns. Within the columns, I have drop down lists to choose a certain option. There are three options to choose from; UN, NI, and ME. Of the three choices, I need to know what percent is returned ME?

Can anyone help me?

Thank you!!

### Excel Facts

Workdays for a market open Mon, Wed, Friday?
Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.
Hopefully I got you question.

=COUNTIF(\$A\$2:\$A\$18,\$C\$1)/COUNTA(\$A\$2:\$A\$18)

For this purpose I've put you UN, NI and ME list in column A, your drop down in C1 and the above formula to return percent of selection in D1 (format cell D1 to percentage)

If you could submit what your worksheet looks like I could redo the formula

Thank you. I figured it out based using your formula, just "tweeked" it. Thanks again!!

Perhaps this:-
Assumed that you Drop downs are validation cells.
Code:
