I need an excel formula to correctly count a total number and a total length amount (please see the attached file).

What I am trying to do is:

1. Count a total number that has dates in either Column H (Signed), Column I (Closed Date) or Column M (Approval) for a specific date range (See the Info tab Columns A and B). I need to make certain that it only counts it as one if there is a date in 3 of 3 places or 2 of 3 places.

2. I am also trying to sum up the amount that is in Column J (Actual Length) on the info tab, if there is a date in either Column H (Signed), Column I (Closed Date) or Column M (Approval). I need to make certain that it only adds the length one time, not 3 times.

I am trying to use a formula that I got here, only messaged to this particular issue, only its counting something way wrong. The Info Tab has the formulas. The data tab has the, well , data.

Try this for C2 copied down

=SUMPRODUCT(((Data!$H$2:$H$10000>=$A2)*(Data!$H$2:$H$10000<=$B2)+(Data!$I$2:$I$10000>=$A2)*(Data!$I$2:$I$10000<=$B2)+(Data!$M$2:$M$10000>=$A2)*(Data!$M$2:$M$10000<=$B2)>0)*(Data!$K$2:$K$10000="N"))

and exactly the same for D2 except with added sum range

=SUMPRODUCT(((Data!$H$2:$H$10000>=$A2)*(Data!$H$2:$H$10000<=$B2)+(Data!$I$2:$I$10000>=$A2)*(Data!$I$2:$I$10000<=$B2)+(Data!$M$2:$M$10000>=$A2)*(Data!$M$2:$M$10000<=$B2)>0)*(Data!$K$2:$K$10000="N"),Data!$J$2:$J$10000)

see attached
