    What can I use to get a COUNT of entries in column O for each date in column B?

    Hi Guys,

    I'm struggling with this one, but maybe I'm just going in mental circles. I'm in Excel 07, and I have tried several different formulas, including COUNTIFS, DCOUNTA, and regular IFS, but for some reason, it's all coming back wrong. Maybe I just entered them wrong...

    Any ideas? My hair can't take much more pulling out...

    Thanks!

    Maybe a small Pivot Table?
    Be very, very careful using IFERROR ! It hides ALL errors which is not always what you want to get correct results

    try this...=COUNTIF(Sheet1!B:B,"="&A3) you need to put the = in "", else the count looks for exactly that...=A3

    A pivot table is your best bet here, but first I'd remove formatting from the empty cells in your input sheet. Then I'd format your input area as a table. Formatting and formulas will automatically expand as needed. When inserting your pivot table, drag the dates to the rows and the total time to the values area.
