Count # of rows in a range that meet two criteria using VBA

I need to count the number of rows in the range:


where the value in column A = lngGroup and the value in column B = lngSub

I figured out how to do this in a cell formula, but I need to do it in vba.

You could try Evaluate, where you can basically use your worksheet function.

If lngGroup and lngSub are numeric

result = Evaluate("SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A50=" & lngGroup & "), --(B1:B50=" & lngSub & "))")

If they are strings:

result = strformula = "SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A50=""" & lngGroup & """), --(B1:B50=""" & lngSub & """))"

OK, try this formula:

Range("A1:A" & Cells(65536, "A").End(xlUp).Row & ",B1:B" & Cells(65536, "A").End(xlUp).Row).Select

Oops, that last one's a mistake - I changed to use a variable for the formula.

strFormula = "SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A50=""" & lngGroup & """), --(B1:B50=""" & lngSub & """))"
result = Evaluate(strFormula)

Using a variable kind of helps when debugging, as does posting the right code.

It worked as soon as I set the focus to shtGroup via Activate and removed the extra quotes for a numeric value.

What is the point of the double negatives "--" at the beginning of each range?
