# Fixing a formula

##### Board Regular
I am trying to write a composite type formula that says if any cell Z1-AK1 has Y in it then C1 should be Y and it doesn't seem to be working. Here is my current formula
=IF(SUM(COUNTIF(Z1:AK1,"Y")))=12,"Y","N")

### Excel Facts

What did Pito Salas invent?
Pito Salas, working for Lotus, popularized what would become to be pivot tables. It was released as Lotus Improv in 1989.

Surely it should be >0 rather than =12 if you want to check if any cell in Z1:AK1 contains a 'Y'?

Also you don't need the SUM, so your formulae would be
=IF(COUNTIF(Z1:AK1,"Y")>0,"Y","N")
