    Counting adjacent cells(text) to equal one value

    Hi All,

    I'm looking for a formula that counts adjacent cells (texts) as one number

    If cell D8 has the word "Present" and E8 has the words "Night Shift", this combined equals 1.

    Calithea, welcome to the forum

    I think you need to explain your requirement in a bit more details.
    i would suggest you upload a sample work book, (all sensitive data removed), showing what data you are working with, a few examples of what your expected outcome is, and how you arrived at that
    To attach a file to your post,
    click advanced (next to quick post),
    scroll down until you see "manage file",
    click that and select "add files" (top right corner).
    click "select files" find your file, click "open" click "upload" click 'done" bottom right. click "submit reply"

    Once the upload is completed the file name will appear below the input boxes in this window.
    You can then close the window to return to the new post screen.
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Regards

    Try and put in cell E2: =(Table1[[#This Row],[Status]]="Present")*(Table1[[#This Row],[Shift]]="Day")
    //Ola
    Mark the problem as Solved under the Yellow bar up Top right, under Thread Tools, when you received a solution.
    It saves time, to skip already solved threads.

    Assuming you want to count the occurances of those 2 events, use this...

    =COUNTIFS($C$2:$C$200,"present",$D$2:$D$200,"Day")

    I dont know how long your table is, so you will need to adjust the ranges as needed

    Hi I am not sure if its what you get
    =IF(AND(E8="Present",OR(F8="Day",F8="Night",F8="Shift")),1,0)

    Formula gives 1 if the F8 cell is one of the those three words "Night, Shift, Day"
