I would like to create a KPI that would check if the values in column A are empty and show the following:

Green light -> 100% of items in the list have value in column A
Yellow light ->50-100% of items in the list have value in column A
Red light ->0-50% of items in the list have value in column A

I was playing around with it but keep getting the "The specified value calculation is not valid. Specify a valid value calculation" error message.

I use MOSS 2007.

Thanks

Under "Value Calculation: " I selected  "Percentage of list items in the view where". Then I tried to choose the column name, then "is equal to" and leave empty the value field.

I would create a calculated column which has a value of 1 if the field is not null

=IF(ISBLANK([Column1],1,0)

and then use this field in your value calculation

I got the error first but it was just missing the bracket. How can I modify this calculation to check for the value in two columns with OR ?

No just use the calculated field and use percentage where value is less than 1

Let me rephrase it: how to change your formula to check if a value in Column A OR B is blank. Then I will do the KPI based on that.

IF(NOT(ISBLANK([Column1])), IF(NOT(ISBLANK([Column2])),1,0),0)

Sorry I have not got SharePoint up and running to check.
