    COUNTIF Criteria Does Not Return Expected Result

    I am using the formula below to count cells based on three criteria. The formula below works fine and returns a result of 54 as expected:

    =COUNTIFS([Adjusted_Export_01.xlsx]Sheet1!$D:$D,">=SH470-000",[Adjusted_Export_01.xlsx]Sheet1!$D:$D,"<=SH470-999",[Adjusted_Export_01.xlsx]Sheet1!$G:$G,5)

    When I try to use the formula below so that it counts the rows where the last criteria is NOT equal to five it does not give the expected result which should be 4. Instead it gives a result of 58 which means it counted all of the rows that met the first two criteria:

    =COUNTIFS([Adjusted_Export_01.xlsx]Sheet1!$D:$D,">=SH470-000",[Adjusted_Export_01.xlsx]Sheet1!$D:$D,"<=SH470-999",[Adjusted_Export_01.xlsx]Sheet1!$G:$G,"<>5")

    Basically I need to know when this last criteria is 5 or when it is something other than 5. The largest the number in the cell would ever be is 5 so I tried the following; I first change the last criteria to "<=4" and it returned a result of 0. Then I put in just a 4 (the other four cells in the search have a value of 4 in each) for the criteria which gave me the desired result of 4, however, I need to be able to account for 1,2,3,4, and an empty cell.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance for the help!

    Re: COUNTIF Criteria Does Not Return Expected Result

    Well I guess I just needed to take a break from the sheet to find the answer. As an after thought I changed the last statement to the following "<>*5*". And it worked fine. The cell does not show any leading or trailing spaces when I click in it but they must be there as it worked just fine after that. Hopefully this will help someone else down the road. Thanks for reading anyway!!
