I need an excel formula to look in column C for "Closed." If its closed, I need the formula to return 100%. If its not closed I need it to return 0 (zero).

Barryhoudini,

It is for a single column. When I use your formula, its just returning tru or false (even though it still makes the computation) I need it to show either 100% or 0%. That way when the managers look at it, they know they need to pay attention to the 0 percents.

Hi

=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Closed",C:C;1)),100,0)

This should do
