    Struggling. sum of number of rows which meet criteria across columns

    Hi,

    I'm struggling with what I think is a pretty simple formula.

    I have a table with data in it. Each row has information in some/all of the cells.

    On a summary sheet I need to add up the number of rows on the table which meet a set of criteria across multiple columnes.

    For example, Column A= Open, Column B= Approved, and Column C= Blank/deferred - this should = 1 on my summary sheet.

    Another way to look at it may be, if Column A= Open, and anything in column B or C= Approved, then this should count as 1.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks,

    T

    Hello T and welcome to the forums.

    Are you able to attach a sample spreadsheet with a before and after example?

    Hopefully this will help. It's an image though unfortunately as I'm restricted from loading up direct from excel.

    Give a try to COUNTIF & COUNTIFS functions.
