I’m trying to create a working attendance table on a spreadsheet (ms excel 97/2000).
----------------------------------------------------
F: 1 day
H: 0.5 day
A: 0 day
S: 0 day

F: full day, H: half day, A: Absence, S: Sick

One table represent a worker attendance that have 31 cells which means 31 days. So if I enter F in a cell and it will give 1 day value, H will give 0.5 day, A and S will give 0 day value. Then, there will be a cell to show total of working days for a worker.
---------------------------------------------------------
Can someone show how to solve the above problem?

Thanks.

With your 31 cells in A1:A31, this formula should do what you want:
=COUNTIF(A1:A31,"F")+COUNTIF(A1:A31,"H")*0.5

I used a setup similar to mousemaster but used a VLookup formula in column three like

=VLOOKUP (B2,I1:J4,2) then copy it all the way down

With your 31 days in cells a1:a31 and your f,h,a and s to be filled in cells B1:b31. The formula in cell c1 should be =(b1="h")*0.5+(b1="f"). Copy this formula to cells C2:C31.
The formula in Cell C32 should be as suggested from Ture
