i've got a column of 'yes' and 'no's and need a formula to work out the percentage of 'yes's. it also needs to allow for the fact that the column is to be added to frequently as more results come in.?? would greatly appreciate a fix to this headache
 

Excel Facts

Round to nearest half hour?
Use =MROUND(A2,"0:30") to round to nearest half hour. Use =CEILING(A2,"0:30") to round to next half hour.

assuming your yes and no are in 2 column regardless of sequence
column B and C

=COUNTIF(B:C, "yes")/COUNTA(B:C)%

paste the above into a cell in any column other than B or C. Modify if your columns are more
