    sumproduct vs. countif

    Question - I have a so-called 'database' of about 15000 rows of data. From
    the so-called 'database' I am performing sumproduct type computations. I do
    not believe I can use the countif function since I am looking at either 2 or
    3 columns of data to extract the proper value (e.g. I can not use countif x
    +/- countif y +/- countif z). My question is this - Does the sumproduct
    function take a long time to perform calculations? Here are a few of my

    =SUMPRODUCT(('Jan Database'!$C$2:$C$19992=C15)*('Jan

    =SUMPRODUCT(('Jan Database'!$C$2:$C$19992=C15)*('Jan
    Database'!$P$2:$P$19992=TRUE)*('Jan Database'!$Q$2:$Q$19992))

    =SUMPRODUCT(('Jan Database'!$C$2:$C$19992=C15)*('Jan
    Database'!$P$2:$P$19992=TRUE)*('Jan Database'!$K$2:$K$19992))

    These are all working properly, just a little slow for the user.

    SUMPRODUCT has always been rather slower for me as well, but unless you are writing your own function (which run slower than built in ones) I can't think of a better way to do it. (Maybe someone else can though)
