    COUNTIF across multiple sheets

    Hi folks,
    I'm pulling together the results of multiple questionaires taking the form
    of a numeric answer (1-4). The responses have been pulled into a master
    workbook and the all reside between marker tabs ("first" and "last").

    Some formulas work OK across the range but not all. e.g
    =SUM('first:last'!F4) returns a valid answer as do AVERAGE, COUNT and COUNTA

    However COUNTIF or SUMIF all return #Value errors. It's not formatting or
    bad input as the error still occurs when there is only 1 data sheet between
    the marker tabs.

    I suspect it may need an 'array' type formula but that's not a strong area
    for me.

    Can anyone give me a working COUNTIF formula?

    Many thanks, Giz

    Re: COUNTIF across multiple sheets

    =SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIF(INDIRECT("'"&C1:C3&"'!C8"),"value"))

    where C1:C3 is a range housing the relevant sheetnames in
    separate cells.

    I agree, 3D counting/summing is somewhat crippled. I don't think it is any
    better in Office 12 either (but I may be wrong<G>).

    Thanks Bob (again!),
    I doubt I would have ever got to that combination. Shame you can't just
    specifiy "sheet1:sheet26". Maybe Microsoft will add it sometime.

    Cheers, Giz
