    Count values in one list and then narrow/combine values based on criteria and count those

    Stumped again.

    I need a way to find a value in a column which has one or more corresponding values in an adjacent column. Then take all of the corresponding values found and count all occurrences of the found values in another column. But I only want to count the entries if an adjacent column is not blank.

    Not the easiest thing to describe. Starting to wonder if I need to think in reverse. I hope the attached example makes more sense.

    Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

    hi razz. maybe an array formula in K2:
    =SUM(COUNTIFS($C$2:$C$10,IF($G$2:$G$8=J2,$F$2:$F$8),$D$2:$D$10,">0"))
    ...confirmed by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to activate the array, not just ENTER. You will know the array is active when you see curly braces { } appear around your formula. If you do not CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER you will get an error or a clearly incorrect answer. Press F2 on that cell and try again.

    Thanks, if you have clicked on the * and added our rep.

    Thanks so much. Worked like a charm. I was trying to make it more complicated than it needed to be and didn't think to use the COUNTIFS.
