how do I update this formula to perform the same calculation with N and Y as it did with 0 and 1. N=0 and Y=1
=COUNTIF(T4:T1003,0)/(IF(T4=1,0,1)+COUNTIF(T4:T1003,1))

I tried the following but it gave me "#Value" as a result
=COUNTIF(T4:T1003,"N")/(IF(T4="Y","N","Y")+COUNTIF(T4:T1003,"Y"))
 

Excel Facts

Square and cube roots
The =SQRT(25) is a square root. For a cube root, use =125^(1/3). For a fourth root, use =625^(1/4).

You are trying to divide with text and that is the problem with the "#VALUE"

the if needs to be changed to numbers - maybe this
Code:
=COUNTIF(T4:T1003,"N")/(IF(T4="Y",1,0)+COUNTIF(T4:T1003,"Y"))
