**Question description:**

*This user has given permission to use the problem statement for this blog.*

I need an IF formula where, IF there is a manual adjustment in a whole column of 100% values (say someone changes one to 90%) would say "Yes" or "No". Tried to solve this with =IF(AVERAGE(...)=100%, "No", "Yes") but it is kind of sloppy).

Hello RG

Hello, I understand that you need help in checking if one value is changed from 100% to something else, you'll get a message that says Yes or NO, right?

User

Exactly

User

i did on the sheet on the right

User

a column of 100%'s

User
07/08/2018 - 10:33

Can you show me an example of when one is changed to something else and the output you expect?

User

So I changed one to 10% and the result is "Yes"

User
07/08/2018 - 10:34

But if I change another to 190% then the result would be "No" as the average value is 100% again

Excelchat Expert

I can see that you have a formula in place, may I know why this doesn't work?

User
07/08/2018 - 10:35

because now I have 2 values changed but the average is the same

User
07/08/2018 - 10:35

therefore the "No" is actually wrong

Excelchat Expert
07/08/2018 - 10:35

Oh, I see. Yes you are right.

User
