    Running numerous countifs for formulas - stuck on best way to setup/apply filters 2 recalc

    Excel file attached. Using Office 365.

    I have a number of easy countif formulas setup that grab the counts given the various criteria across a number of columns. Ultimately, this is to create a percentage calculation where I use the countifs to sum all the numerator values and then another sum to have all the various denominator values and then create that percentage. That is easy enough - I'm sure there is a better way to do it, but it's simple and easy to replicate.

    My problem is I have to do this same countif/sum/division for 23 different scenarios based on filtering the data source various ways. It also has to be repeatable as I have to do this every month where I copy a new datasource into the Excel file to run the various calculations.

    I've seen other scenarios on here around not counting hidden rows where you create a visible flag and use sumproduct formulas, but that doesn't seem like it would work given how many filters I need to apply. Any help?

    See attached: I set up Named Ranges (N14:Q21)and used Data Validation to select choice.

    Thanks! I updated the formulas a bit for the calculations to be correct. I verified that the Market Num selection list works as well as the Q5 list with your 1/2/3/1-3 drop down list but how would I change that to update for running Q14 or Q56?

    Go to Data ==>Data Validation==>Allow: List Source: Q14_List

    Repeat and use Q56_List

    Got it. I didn't see the formula edits I needed to make to pick the correct column (B/C/D for the change in Q14/Q56/Q6). That's all sorted now.
    Here was the final worksheet for posterity with all the updates made.

    So, reviewing this closer, the solution was to instead use =countifs to add the additional filter based on the additional logic needed for each of those 23 data filter scenarios. You cleaned it up a bit by adding data validation so instead of 23 calculation sections, we could get down to just 6 or so by using the data validation list. Got it! thanks for the help!
