  • I'm asking default way to count words "W" in column to receive answer 15 from 25 or 60%. As alternative I know VBA, and if somebody know how to use it there - it would help. As I can see in your link it`s JavaScript, thank you, at least something I can try. Aug 6, 2015 at 21:05

There is no need of something similar to VBA as the percentage could be calculate by using built-in functions.

The column C has values L or W. To calculate the percentage of W use the following formula in C1:

  • COUNTIF(C3:C,"W") counts cells from C3 to the last cell in column C with W.
  • COUNTA(C3:C) counts all the cells from C3 to the last cell in column C with any alphabetic value.

To display the result as percentage apply the % format.
