    Count unique values if 2 other criteria are met

    Hi everyone.

    Firstly, apologies....I know there are plenty of threads about this issue online - after many many wasted hours, I simply can not get it working with my data.

    What I am after is a formula which counts the number of unique values from column B (Employer name), when 3 different criteria are met (year, type of event and event cancelled <>Y). For example, if IBM appeared twice in the raw data when "Year= C34" and "Type= B34" and "Cancelled <> Y" - 2 would be the result.

    I have data in one sheet, and the results in another. I am stuck with cells D34 in the 'Review of events' sheet, I can then use the same formula for all "Employer participation" stats.
    Employers.xlsx

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks.

    If you're counting uniques wouldn't the result be 1?

    I just downloaded your file and I can't make heads or tails out of it.

    Your description doesn't match what I see in the file.

    Yes, correct the result would be 1 - good spot. My mind is frazzled with how long I've been working on this!

    This is just sample data so IBM may also hold a different type of event e.g. One-to-one, so this would be added up in cell D35.

    Sorry I've not explained that very well. I want the TOTAL number of unique values to be placed in D34 if the other three criteria are met.

    Hi

    in D6 and below to be confirmed with control+shift+enter

    =SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(Data!$J$2:$J$38=C6,IF(Data!$I$2:$I$38=B6,IF(Data!$H$2:$H$38<>"Y",MATCH(Data!$B$2:$B$38,Data!$B$2:$B$38,0)))),ROW($A$2:$A$38)-1)>0,1,0))


    Please refer to yellow formulas

    Hope it helps

    Hi,

    thanks for providing feedback: I was a little lost in translating formulas from Italian settings.
