    Exclamation Count number of Rows with multiple criteria (multiple valued cells)

    Hello!

    I'm fairly new to excel and to this forum.

    I'll just be straight about my problem

    Here's a part of my data

    A B C
    1 1,2 1,4
    2 1,3,4 2,3
    1 1,4 2
    1 3,4 2,3
    2 1 1

    So what i wanted to know is how do i get the number of data with A=1, B=4, C=2 so the result will be 2

    So far, i've been using SUMPRODUCT to some of my data, apparently, it doesn't work when it comes to cells with "comma"

    I tried using =sumproduct((A:A=1)*(B:B=4)(C:C=2))
    it doesn't work because of the comma's

    I need help

    thanks!

    Re: I need help in a certain formula

    Maybe i'm using a wrong function or formula. I'm sorry for that. What i meant to do was a criteria function. It would count the number of rows with having "1" in column A, "4" in column B and "2" in column C. So the result would be 2. Some of the cells though have "commas", i don't know how it would affect the formula. I hope you understand since my english is very rusty. Thanks!

    Re: I need help in a certain formula

    Assumed your data in range: A1:C5

    =SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A5=B7),--ISNUMBER(SEARCH(B8,B1:B5)),--ISNUMBER(SEARCH(B9,C1:C5)))

    B7=1
    B8=4
    B9=2

    Hope it helps

    this is helpful! I still have a problem though, some of the numbers in a cell ranged from 1-40. So if a row having "1" in column A, "4" in column B and "22" or any other number with "2" in column C, it includes it in the count. This is a real problem, i have thousand of rows for this.
