Please see the SSE – All Jobs Tracker - Column AD formula from Row 5 onwards – I”ve put the formula incorrectly so please can you correct it in Row AD5 so I can see it: I’ve put: =IF(AC5="","",IF(AC5="Retro Fit-Non-Jointing""FPIs-Non-Jointing""Defects""Other","N","Y")) but all Cells in Column AD are coming up blank or with Y in it so it’s not working: What I want the formula to say is this….. If the Value in Column AC is blank or ‘Other’, leave it blank BUT if the value is ‘Defects,’ ‘Retro Fit-Non-Jointing’ or ‘FPI’s-Non-Jointing’, then put “N”, for all other options put “Y”. The options are on a drop down list inserted via data validation on the Drop Down Options Tab – Row F8-16.

I am new to excel and I am trying to create a workbook for a training ramp. There will be 10 classes. So I have created a summary page and 10 tabs, 1 for each class. On the summary page I need a begginning head count, total # termed, final head count and the attrition. I do not know what formulas I need to get this. On each sheet I have a termed column Yes/No with a data validation dropdown to select. Any help would be appreciated as to what formulas I would need to make this work.
