Trying to create an IF statement in Excel when all answers are YES, Column I turns to "YES" and if there is one answer that is "No" then column I turns to "NO".

@HighFiveEm 

That's like

=IF( PRODUCT( (C4:C9="yes")*1) *
     PRODUCT( (E4:E9="yes")*1) *
     PRODUCT( (G4:G7="yes")*1) ,
 "yes", "no")

If you are on 365 you don't need PRODUCT

Thank you Sergei...this worked fantastic.

@Sergei Baklan 

 

So I want to update it also if "Yes" or "N/A" then it is Yes.  But if "No" in any question then it returns a "NO".

I used the following formula which worked much better but still need to include the N/A.

=IF(COUNTIF(C4:C9,"<>YES")+COUNTIF(E4:E9,"<>YES")+COUNTIF(G4:G7,"<>YES"), "NO", "YES")

@HighFiveEm 

Do you mean #N/A error returned by function or text "N/A" ?

@HighFiveEm 

In general you may check the opposite - if at least one No then No else Yes. Like

=IF(COUNTIFS(E4:E9, "No")+COUNTIFS(G4:G7, "No")+COUNTIFS(C4:C9, "No"), "No", "Yes")

if you prefer COUNTIFS()

Text "N/A", if someone answers a question with a "N/A" the overall is still a "YES"

@HighFiveEm 

Thank you. Does previous formula to check "no" works, or that could be other variants except "yes", "no" and "n/a" ?
