    Exclamation Using COUNTIFS across numerous columns within a SUBTOTAL

    Hi All,

    Apologies if this causes any repetition, but I've looked at a number of threads around this topic and im struggling to find an answer that does exactly what im looking for here.

    I am trying to create a dynamic subtotal table at the top of a spreadsheet that counts the number of instances of given scenarios (from a big data dump below the table - Rows 18-71), where there are numerous IFs required to be met across different columns that play into the scenarios...

    e.g. I have 'Outlet Type' in Column A, & i have 'Outlet Open Status' in Column C - as well as many other fields around them in other columns like 'who owns the outlet', 'Outlet quality' or 'does it have outdoor space'' etc.

    What i want to be able to do is have the subtotal count the number of outlets that are say Open (e.g. Green), by Type (e.g. 09. Restaurant), when i then filter on other columns like 'Outlet Owner' in Column D or on Outlets that have 'Outside Seating' in Column E.

    That way, it is possible to regularly paste in the data dump, and have users see how many scenarios there are of different types over time, to help with planning.

    BUT, i cant seem to get the subtotal to give me a count other than ZERO, when there are two conditions in DIFFERENT COLUMNS.

    I want the area highlighted in Yellow on the example spreadsheet to subtotal the count of scenarios, when you filter on a column in row 18

    Could anyone help?

    Hi there.

    A picture is worth 1,000 words. An Excel sheet is worth 1,000 pictures.

    Please read the yellow banner about sample worksheets, at the top of the screen. Act on its guidelines and post a SMALL sample sheet.
    Glenn

    Maybe... perhaps... but there is no "area highlighted in yellow" to be seen... So I do not know what you want to see, or where you want to see it.

    BtW, your formula in C2 and around is not very friendly. Use this, copied across and down:

    =COUNTIFS($A$19:$A$71,$A2, $C$19:$C$71, C$1)

    Thanks Glenn,

    I've uploaded a 2nd version of the example. Mustve not saved the highlight the first time, sorry.

    So, the highlighted range (C2 to E13) is where i want to use the subtotal with numerous IFs

    I want the table to be able to show 'How many Green Bars are there?' when you filter on Outdoor Space 'Y' in Column E for example. So the formula in C2:E13 needs to reflect 2 conditions, Green/Amber or Red AND What kind of Outlet it is (Bar/Hotel etc)

    Does that make sense?

    Re: Using COUNTIFS across numerous columns within a SUBTOTAL

    I figured it out and have not yet looked at attachment 2.

    In B2, copied down:
    =SUMPRODUCT(($A$19:$A$71=$A2)*(SUBTOTAL(103,OFFSET($A$19,ROW($A$19:$A$71)-MIN(ROW($A$19:$A$71)),0))))

    in C2, copied across and dnown:
    =SUMPRODUCT(($A$19:$A$71=$A2)*($C$19:$C$71=C$1)*(SUBTOTAL(103,OFFSET($A$19,ROW($A$19:$A$71)-MIN(ROW($A$19:$A$71)),0))))
