    Question Count if formula to count absent days

    Hi, I would appreciate some help on the following problem
    I have a worker absent list for certain time. In the picture you can see absent list for 10 days.
    In the id column you can see the ID number of a particular employee and in current status , you can see 'A'. That means the worker was absent 1 day in those 10 days.
    there is a row gap between 2 information which is unnecessary but our software produces information that way.
    When a worker is absent for more than 1 day, his id, name comes in the first row, in the next record , only ID number comes. So if a worker, say, 3 days absent,his ID and name would appear in the 1st row, next 2 consecutive days , only ID would show. So from the record I can calculate manually that he was 3 days absent.
    However I need to calculate each employees total days of absent in a separate column so with each ID so that I can see how many days he was absent in a period of time.
    Your kind help needed please.
    For some reason I can't attach the picture, system shows error, so gave the link of the image

    Re: Count if formula to count absent days

    Welcome to the forum!

    Will you please attach a sample Excel workbook? We are not able to work with or manipulate a picture of one.

    1. Make sure that your sample data are REPRESENTATIVE of your real data. The use of unrepresentative data is very frustrating and can lead to long delays in reaching a solution.

    2. Make sure that your desired solution is also shown (mock up the results manually).

    3. Make sure that all confidential data is removed or replaced with dummy data first (e.g. names, addresses, E-mails, etc.).

    4. Try to avoid using merged cells as they cause lots of problems.

    Unfortunately the attachment icon doesn't work at the moment, so to attach an Excel file you have to do the following: just before posting, scroll down to Go Advanced and then scroll down to Manage Attachments. Now follow the instructions at the top of that screen.

    Please pay particular attention to point 2 (above): without an idea of your intended outcomes, it is often very difficult to offer appropriate advice.
