Hi
Would you please check my attached excel sample file where I want to count the total of *Approved* in cell B:B of sheet Status where cell A:A match with the criteria(best001)
Result in cell A2 Sheet1 will be 8(those are colered in Green)
I added formulla in cell A2 only but it gave me 0.
Please advice where need to be change or modified.
It would be great if you update the attached file and send it back to me.
Thanks in advance for your understanding and co-operation.

Thanks

Hello,

in Excel 2007 and later you would be able to use Countifs, in 2003 and earlier you can use Sumproduct.

=SUMPRODUCT(--(NOT(ISERROR(FIND("best001",Status!$A$1:$A$38)))),--(Status!$B$1:$B$38="Approved"))

The above will find any cell that contains "best001" AND has approved in the next cell. If you want to find an exact match for the text


Alpha"best001"

then you can also use

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Status!$A$1:$A$38="Alpha"&"""best001"&""""),--(Status!$B$1:$B$38="Approved"))

The quotation marks in the cell require the unusual formulation of the search string.

cheers, teylyn

Thanks a lot, it works only one thing I want to do is instead of specific line numbers(as you write $A$1: $A$38 same $B$1:$B38) how can I use like A:A and B:B to count as many lines in cell A and cell B have data to count .
Please advice how to do that.
I appreciate your prompt advice.

Thanks

Not for points.

You cannot do that in 2003. You have to specify a range, although you can use $A$2:$A$65536 for example. Better to use dynamic named ranges though: http://www.contextures.com/xlNames01.html#Dynamic

Hello,

please find in the attached file

- two dynamic range names for the Company and Status columns in the Status sheet
Company      =Status!$A$1:INDEX(Status!$A:$A,COUNTA(Status!$A:$A))
Status      =OFFSET(Company,0,1)

- an adjusted Sumproduct formula that uses these range names rather than fixed references

=SUMPRODUCT(--(NOT(ISERROR(FIND("best001",Company)))),--(Status="Approved"))

cheers, teylyn
