Hello again, Experts.  I need your help.

See attached worksheet for details.  I'm trying to develop a flexible COUNTIF formula using CONCATENATE to fill in the variables from reference cells.

Is this a klugy approach??  I bet you guys can give me a better solution.

You'll need to use INDIRECT as well (passing the result of the CONCATENATE formula) and the source workbook will need to be open.
