    Re: basic countif function

    How about a Pivot table.

    Drag the Name and Status to Row Labels, then the Status dragged again to Summation area...
    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    .."Sound" strange to me..

    Pls, take a look to the example.


    So you have a Greek(?) friend in Patra?

    Have you ever visit Greece?

    Re: basic countif function

    Then you would need COUNTIFS

    e.g.

    =COUNTIFS(Sheet2!B:B,A2,Sheet2!C:C,B2)

    where A2 and B2 contain a name and status respectively... copy formula down.

    Re: basic countif function

    Ok....I really don't know.. Apologize..

    This is the corect formula.

    =SUMPRODUCT(($B$4:$B$18=B4)*($C$4:$C$18=C4))

    Copy down.
    That's why formula does not works for you...

    Re: basic countif function

    guys unless i am being super thick, but i am pretty sure the formula should be

    =COUNTIFS(B4:B18,B4,C4:C18,C4)
    b4:b18 is looking at the range, b4 is selecting who i want, then c4:c18 is looking at the status, and c4 is the specfic status. and that gives me the total. thats the correct formulas i belive

    Re: basic countif function

    Yes. Corect. I am sure that NBVC didn't noticed that your data starts in Row 4...

    As you are in Excel2007, this is better solution than SUMPRODUCT(The second one) that also works.

    That is similar to what I have suggested.. except I assumed your summary was in a separate sheet....

    If not, then

    =COUNTIFS($B$4:$B$18,B4,$C$4:$C$18,C4)

    copied down...
