    Compare two cells in a row with Criteria. Count Rows that match Criteria

    I've got a task for work and I can't seem to figure it out. Thank you in advance for any assistance provided.

    Here is what I have. 4 Worksheets. The first worksheet is a summary page. I have 350 personnel that are broken down into three different groups. So each group has it's own sheet.

    Here is what I need to accomplish. Results need to be posted on the summary sheet.

    I need to compare cells B2 & D3 for each row on a worksheet and display the number of times they match on a worksheet. For example how many times does EP & EP match on a certain row.

    I need to compare cells B2 & D3 for each row on a worksheeet and display the number of times they don't match on a worksheet. For example how many times does EP & MP occur.

    I've attached an example for reference

    Hi,

    I am not sure this is what you are looking for, but you could try this on your summary sheet:

    I apologize. In my haste to get this solved I did not follow the rules. Please forgive my ignorance. I hope the above is acceptable.

    since colum b always has ep or p or mp
    just count them in col d
    =COUNTIF(EP!D:D,"ep")
    but blank to p is slightly different

    Holy Smokes. I didn't even think about that. I was trying to come up with some complicated formula to figure this out and you came up with a simple explanation.

    I'm smacking my head thinking that I should've known that. But I guess when there is a time crunch on getting it done you forget about the simple stuff.

    Thanks again. Problem solved.
