### 1. Using COUNTIFS Function

The most used formula to calculate half day in the Excel attendance sheet is the **COUNTIFS function**. Follow the steps below to use this function to get your desired result.

**📌 Steps:**

- First and foremost, make a new column for each employee to calculate their total leaves.
- Afterward, click on the
**C5**cell and insert the following formula.

`=COUNTIFS('Attendance Sheet'!C8:AG8,"PL")+COUNTIFS('Attendance Sheet'!C8:AG8,"A")+COUNTIFS('Attendance Sheet'!C8:AG8,"HL")/2`

**🔎**** Formula Breakdown:**

**=COUNTIFS(‘Attendance Sheet’!C8:AG8,”PL”)**

This returns you the result of how many “**PL”** values are there in the range of **C8:AG8** cells in the **Attendance Sheet** worksheet.

**Result:** 0

**COUNTIFS(‘Attendance Sheet’!C8:AG8,”A”)**

This returns you the result of how many “**A”** values are there in the range of **C8:AG8** cells in the **Attendance Sheet** worksheet.

**Result:** 0

**COUNTIFS(‘Attendance Sheet’!C8:AG8,”HL”)/2**

This returns you the result of how many “**HL”** values are there in the range of **C8:AG8** cells in the **Attendance Sheet** worksheet. And, divide the result by 2.

**Result:** 0

**=COUNTIFS(‘Attendance Sheet’!C8:AG8,”PL”)+COUNTIFS(‘Attendance Sheet’!C8:AG8,”A”)+COUNTIFS(‘Attendance Sheet’!C8:AG8,”HL”)/2**

This sums up all the previous breakdown results.

**Result:** 0

- Subsequently, hit the
**Enter**button.

- As a result, you can get the total leaves of the first employee, John.
- Now, place your cursor in the

**COUNTIFS(‘Attendance Sheet’!C8:AG8,{“PL”,”A”,”HL”})*{1,1,0.5}**

This function finds the “PL”, “A”, and “HL” values in the range of C8:AG8 cells of the Attendance Sheet. Afterward, they multiply the results by 1, 1, and 0.5 respectively.

**Result:**0,0,0

**=SUM(COUNTIFS(‘Attendance Sheet’!C8:AG8,{“PL”,”A”,”HL”})*{1,1,0.5})**

This sums up the results got by the COUNTIFS function.

**Result:** 0

- Subsequently, hit the
**Enter**button.
