    Countifs Index Match

    Hi All,

    I need to be able to count the number of Units that contribute 80% of activity, the data would look like attached

    Essentially the conditions are:
    Market Research
    Area
    Year.....(If you could work in a way to get another condition in for a year either 2013 or 2012 I would be forever grateful!)

    But I cannot seem to get a Countifs index Match to work here.

    Thanks so much in advance

    I think you'll have to be a little more clear on what you are doing. Where do the 3, 3 and 4 come from? Doesn't seem that I can replicate those values based on your description of the question.
    Despite the high cost of living, it remains very popular.

    Re: Countifs Index Match

    Its just a count of the units based on a number of criteria,

    e.g. if all of the activity adds up to 100% then how many units contribute to making up 80% or less of that, so thats where the 3, 3, and 4 come from.

    Its counting how many of them add up to 80 or less

    Re: Countifs Index Match

    How is Area 3 4 and Area 2 3 then. Can you do a calculation example, say which ones you are counting and why?

    For the Market research for area 2 you could add 12,15,15 and get <80% for your 3 answer but then for area 3 you would also need to include the blank cell to get to 4. It just does not seem consistent based on what I am expecting.

    Re: Countifs Index Match

    Hi,
    Its not a duplicate post from me at least! Maybe its a common problem this week!

    I am sooo sorry for not being clear enough I'm a bit stressed out today

    I read it back to myself and you're right - crystal clear as mud!!

    I have reworked the example in the spreadsheet

    I can achieve the first part:

    Sort highest to lowest per area
    Sum each one cumulatively in a helper column
    Stop when I reach 80 or less
    Flag each one that has been cumulatively summed to 80
    This will leave me with a list of flags for each area

    Part 2:
    Totally stuck!!
    I would like to count up the flags for each area
    I don't appear to be working in the conditions correctly

    I would like to use a COUNTIFS INDEX MATCH (as this would be the most flexible in terms of working in a 3rd condition (which I will need as I need to do a 2 year comparison 2012 - 2013)

    Thanks so much,

    Re: Countifs Index Match

    If you can do it with some helper columns off to the side and show the result with the calculations I am sure that we can condense it into a smaller set of formulas for you! When you have time just see if you can solve it with helper columns and post a workbook with a solution and I can give it another look.

    Right now for Area 3 I see 19,31,22 for Market Research. I am not sure what the 4th one is, which is why I am having issue determining a solution. Communicating over a forum isn't always the easiest!

    Thanks Hawkeye,
    I'm getting the helper columns working now
    Just actually bringing back the flag count that I'm struggling with now
