    Excel 2003 Countifs formula help please

    hi all

    i am currently using excell 2011 at home however 2003 verison at work, i have done a spreadsheet that checks a column on the other sheet for a letter and then in tern counts up another column. the formula is =COUNTIFS('3 RIFLES DVR DATABASE'!$E$10:$E$528,"A",'3 RIFLES DVR DATABASE'!$I$10:$I$528,"<>")

    however when i open the spreasheet up in 2003 version i get a #NAME? error. does anyone have an idea on how i change the formula to get it to work or have a different formula i can try

    thank you

    mick

    you can use sumproduct instead

    =SUMPRODUCT(--('3 RIFLES DVR DATABASE'!$E$10:$E$528 = "A"),--('3 RIFLES DVR DATABASE'!$I$10:$I$528 ?????))

    you have "<>" does not equal - what

    change the formula in 2011 at home and see that it works , and then 2003 should be ok

    Re: Excel 2003 Countifs formula help please

    If I remeber correctly countifs and sumif were only introduced in Excel 2007 and they were not made compatible with Excel 2003
    i.e. Excel 2003 does not support those - only their single condition counterparts

    =SUMPRODUCT(--('3 RIFLES DVR DATABASE'!$E$10:$E$528="A"),--('3 RIFLES DVR DATABASE'!$I$10:$I$528<>""))

    that in COUNTIF means does not equals to blank.

    hi guys

    etaf

    the "<>" was used so it would count up anything in that range.

    guys please find attached a the worksheet

    in the workings sheet you will see countifs works but not in 2003 i get #Name? error

    i have had to delete alot of sheets to be able to upload it on here, but you still have main sheet,workings and A Coy tab

    Re: Excel 2003 Countifs formula help please

    You can keep adding conditions in that same format, so if you only want to include rows where column B = "x" change to this version

    =SUMPRODUCT(--('3 RIFLES DVR DATABASE'!$E$10:$E$528="A"),--('3 RIFLES DVR DATABASE'!$I$10:$I$528<>""),--('3 RIFLES DVR DATABASE'!$B$10:$B$528="x"))
