Yes. While a sacrifice fly does not count against your batting average it does against your on base percentage.

On base % = (hits + walks + hits by pitch) / (at-bats + walks + hits by pitch + sacrifice flies)

Does an error count as an at bat?

Yes an error counts as an at bat, but not a hit. You would be 0 for 1 on the play, but your on base percentage goes up because you have reached base safely. Errors can be committed on sacrifice bunts and sacrifice flies. If the official scorer rules a play a sacrifice bunt/fly and an error, the batter is not charged with a time at bat. On base percentage goes down when reaching base on an straight error.

How do you calculate a player's on base percentage?

On base percentage In baseball statistics, on base percentage (OBP) is a measure of how often a batter gets to first base for any reason other than a fielding error or a fielder's choice. It may be calculated as: (H + BB + HBP) / (AB + BB + HBP + SF) OBP is sometimes referred to as "on base average" or OBA. It is possible for a player's on base percentage to be lower than his batting average (H/AB). If a player had 2 hits and 5 at bats with a sacrifice fly, his batting average would be .400 but his on base percentage would be .333. Credited:
