    Question Countif the values are betw 00:00 - 00:59 (hours) when another column contains value "X"

    Hello people!

    First time posting here, and I've hit a bit of a hard wall.
    I have a column containing days of the week Mon-Sun, and another column containing specific times of when a particular event occurs.

    e.g.
    Column A | Column B
    Tuesday | 15:23
    Thursday | 10:18
    Wednesday | 21:46
    Tuesday | 15:02
    Monday | 03:15
    Friday | 19:08
    Tuesday | 09:51

    What I'm trying to generate is a formula that can look at both column A and column B, and count how many times on a Tuesday did the event take place between 15:00 and 15:59, (in the above example the outcome of this sought-after formula would be 2), and I don't know how to do it

    Any help would be thoroughly appreciated!

    Thank you so much

    Re: Countif the values are betw 00:00 - 00:59 (hours) when another column contains value "

    One way is this:=COUNTIFS($A$1:$A$7,"Tuesday",$B$1:$B$7,">="&0.625,$B$1:$B$7,"<="&0.6659)
    Times in excel are numbers converted. meaning that in the formula above 0.625 is 15:00 and 0.6659 is 15.59

    You could also write it like this if it's easier to follow

    =COUNTIFS(A1:A7,"Tuesday",B1:B7,">="&((1/24)*15),B1:B7,"<"&((1/24)*16))

    My formula makes it a bit explicit, but times in excel as stored as decimals. One day is 1. Therefore 1/24 is one hour.

    Aaah amazing, apologies, I hadn't seen your reply, Kyle123, when I initially responded, your formula is indeed quite explicit

    Thank you both!

    Re: Countif the values are betw 00:00 - 00:59 (hours) when another column contains value "

    The values can obviously be in 2 cells

    so if c1 contains 15:00
    and c2 contains 16:00

    =COUNTIFS(A1:A7,"Tuesday",B1:B7,">="&((1/24)*15),B1:B7,"<"&((1/24)*16))

    becomes

    =COUNTIFS(A1:A7,"Tuesday",B1:B7,">="&c1,B1:B7,"<"&c2)

    in the same way that excel stores times as decimals, does it do something similar with dates?

    for example, if I wanted to include the date 12/05/2019 in a this formula, what would it have to be written as?
    =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("12/05/2019",E2)),"first delivery"," ")

    because this keeps giving me the value_if_false in the cell.

    This is a pretty good explanation of how Excel stores dates and times: http://www.cpearson.com/Excel/datetime.htm
