I want to count the number of cells in COLUMN F that are conditionally formatted to red, and then find the percentage of total cells in COLUMN F that are red. This can be placed at the bottom of the column. I want to automatically delete the YES value in the cell in COLUMN F once the date in COLUMN E has passed.

On Tab "Employee Information" I need Column V to use the if formula from Column P to decipher whether the Employee file Single "S", Married "M", or Do Not Withhold "DNW". Once it deciphers this, if the answer is "S" I need it to lookup the tab "Payroll Calculator" AG4 for the first Employee, and find the Gross Taxable Percentage from the named group "SingleFedTaxTable" or tab "Data" range H14 through I20, to find the percentage on J14 the J20. If the answer is "M" I need it to lookup the tab "Payroll Calculator" AG4 for the first Employee, and find the Gross Taxable Percentage from the named group "MarriedFedTaxTable" or tab "Data" range H26 through I32, to find the percentage on J26 through J32. If the answer is "DNW" I just need it to answer with a 0.

On Tab "Employee Information" I need Column U to use an if formula from Column P to decipher whether the Employee file Single "S", Married "M", or Do Not Withhold "DNW". Once it deciphers this, if the answer is "S" I need it to lookup the tab "Payroll Calculator" AG for the Employee's Taxable Gross Wage, and using this number find the Gross Taxable Percentage from the named group "SingleFedTaxTable" (or tab "Data" range H14 through I20), to find where the The Taxable Gross Wage falls between the H and I columns on the Data tab, the percentage on J14 the J20 from the row which the The Taxable Gross Wage falls in between then needs to be displayed on the "Employee Information" in column U. If the answer is "M" I need for it to do the same as above, but using the named group "MarriedFedTaxTable" or tab "Data" range H26 through I32, to find the percentage on J26 through J32. If the answer is "DNW" I just need it to answer with a 0. If there any way this can be worked out?

Hello,I have a historical time series going left to right. I have about 50 rows and 3,000 columns for each day. I have a column at the end that shows the max value in each row. I want every other value expressed as a percentage of this number. So I already have a blank row in between each populated row where I want these values. Not every space is populated, so I just want a percentage beneath each box that is populated. Can you please help me?
