    countifs working on extended ranges and different sheets not working

    i have a countifs function working on a different sheet

    so the formula is
    =COUNTIFS(Sheet2!$B:$B,$A3,Sheet2!$AK:$AK,B$2)
    which works

    where i have a grid with the criteria

    this works OK
    and
    =COUNTIFS(Sheet2!$B1:$B1000,$A3,Sheet2!$AK1:$AK1000,B$2)
    also works

    BUT
    if i change the range of the first criteria range to more then one column it fails

    =COUNTIFS(Sheet2!$B1:$G1000,$A3,Sheet2!$AK1:$AK1000,B$2)

    it retunes value
    i have text in A3
    Face to face
    and i have tried
    =COUNTIFS(Sheet2!$B:$B,"=Face to face",Sheet2!$AK:$AK,B$2)

    so no idea why it fails if i extend the columns

    any ideas ?

    thanks
    Wayne

    Re: countifs working on extended ranges and different sheets not working

    Hi,

    From office.microsoft.com: "Each additional range must have the same number of rows and columns as the criteria_range1 argument."

    So

    =COUNTIFS(Sheet2!$B1:$G1000,$A3,Sheet2!$AK1:$AP1000,B$2)

    would fix this issue, though obviously may have undesirable consequences, depending what's in columns AL:AP.

    You can do it with SUMPRODUCT:

    =SUMPRODUCT((Sheet2!$B1:$G1000=$A3)*(Sheet2!$AK1:$AK1000=B$2))
