    Counting Cells that includes exact match and also if a cell includes specific text

    Hi Guys

    I have a requirement to count the number of cells only if they include an exact match in column C and also contain specific text within a string of text in the corresponding row of Column D.

    I am trying to use the countifs function with the search function as below without success.


    =COUNTIFS('Incite Raw'!$C$2:$D$12241,"="&$B3,'Incite Raw'!$C$2:$D$12241,ISNUMBER(SEARCH(E$1,'Incite Raw'!$C$2:$D$12241)))

    Is this formula incorrect and if so what is the best way to achieve the result?

    Thanks

    Scott

    Hi Scott,

    Welcome to the forum.

    I believe an array formula can help here.. please upload a sample workbook. Thanks.

    Maybe:

    =COUNTIFS('Incite Raw'!$C$2:$C$12241, $B3, 'Incite Raw'!$D$2:$D$12241, "*" & E$1 & "*")


    NOTE: Your profile shows you to be using Excel 2003 which does not have the COUNTIFS function. You would need to convert to a SUMPRODUCT for Excel 2003. If you do have a later version, be sure to update your profile.

    You could try something like this using sumproduct,
    which will work across all Excel versions:
    =SUMPRODUCT(EXACT(C887:C888,"ppp")*(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("owl",D887:D888))))
    where "ppp" would be your B3, "owl" = your E1
    Note that the ranges are single columns

    NB: Replace SEARCH with FIND in the formula if you need the substring search to be strictly case sensitive

    The formula I gave in post #3 is correct for that workbook. It is not an array formula, just enter it normally and copy down/across.

    In fact, you don't even need to define the range, this works, too:

    =COUNTIFS('Incite Raw'!$C:$C, $B3, 'Incite Raw'!$D:$D, "*" & E$1 & "*")
