    Hi,

    Suppose your data is in cell A1 to A100 then to count the number of cell with any criteria like nos. between 1 and 10 you can use Array Formuals.

    Eg.

    ={sum((A1:A100>=1) * ( A1:A100)<=10) )}

    Enter the above formula without curly braces ... then press ctrl+shift+enter
    curly brace will automatically appear....

    The formulas are correct but i can't understant why they don`t work...the data are coming from a SUBSTITUTE formula (original data G23m, data of coloumn H 23) but even if I paste the values the result is always 0....I use Excel 2000, unfortunately I can`t post a copy of the document...

    I suspect that the Col_H values are text, not numeric.

    Try this formula:

    Does that resolve the problem?

    One way to convert to numbers is to add a +0 to the end of your Substitute() formula in column H.

    This will convert numbers extracted as text to General numbers...
    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    Yes it`s a possible way but when i got the value "Not disclosed" excel give me the #VALUE error...so i think that I`ll extract numbers value from text with this formula

    =SUMPRODUCT((TEXT(H1:H1000,"00000")>="00001")*(TEXT(H1:H1000,"00000")<="00010"))+0

    In the way that i could create graphs from the values found (that are numeric values now)...

    There are ways around that error... but the formula solution you've got works so may as well go with it.

    If you post your SUBSTITUTE formula, we may be able to come up with a formula you can use.

    Now that I have to sum the values I obtained there is another problem...I can`t sum the text value...and if I trasform them in numbers value I got error #VALUE from the cell where there is "Not disclosed"
    This is the SUBSTITUTE formula I use

    =SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(D3,"G",""),"m","")

    If you need to sum the "values" between 1 and 10, inclusive,
    try something like this ARRAY FORMULA, committed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER,
    instead of ENTER:

    Sorry but i think i`ve explained the situation in a bad way...because of my english...
    For example in the coloumn H i got different values
    1
    2
    3
    not disclosed
    5
    2
    5
    not disclosed

    3

    These are all text values because i used this formula to obtain them
    =SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(D3,"G",""),"m","")

    Now I`m able to count the numbers in a certain range with the formula
    =SUMPRODUCT((TEXT(H1:H1000,"00000")>="00001")*(TEXT(H1:H1000,"00000")<="00010"))

    I also need to sum all the numeric values...(result of the example is 21) but I`m not able because i haven`t got numeric values but text values
    If i try to change the values in a numeric value I obtain the #VALUE error in corrispondence of the "not disclosed" array...

    just a little update
    If i try to obtain all numeric values with the formula

    =SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(D2,"G",""),"m",""),"Not disclosed","")+0

    I got no problem with cell (for example g23m) but in correspondence to the cells with "Not disclosed" I got the #VALUE...is there a way to avoid it?

    Thanks

    Perhaps something like this will work for you:
    This ARRAY FORMULA sums all numeric values in the referenced range
    =SUM(IF(ISNUMBER(--H1:H1000),H1:H1000))

    Note: the double-minus is used to effect a conversion from text to numbers.
    You could also add (or subtract) zero or divide or multiply by one, but
    the double-minus is a clear indication that a conversion is intended, and
    not an arithmetic operation.

    Does that help?

    The formula is an ARRAY FORMULA.

    As I mentioned a few posts ago:
    "ARRAY FORMULA, committed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER,
    instead of ENTER"

    That should resolve the issue.

    It`s entered like an Array formula but the result is anyway 0....

    When I open the workbook you posted and
    put this ARRAY FORMULA in one of the cells:

    =SUM(IF(ISNUMBER(--H1:H10),--H1:H10))

    it returns: 14878

    I can't think of any other suggestions to offer.

    You`re right but if If I try to apply the formula to the other cell the formula doesn`t work anymore...so I changed the original formula to obtain all numeric values without errors in correspondence of "not disclosed"

    =(SUBSTITUTE((SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(D35,"GBP",""),"m","")),"Not disclosed",0))+0

    Edit: your formula is also working, i think i`ll use it

    Thanks for help
