Countifs


I want to plot the distribution of column A having 14 numbers by counting into buckets in column B
ColA          ColB
 421,006        400,000
 432,070        410,000
 436,415        420,000
 438,019        430,000
 443,280        440,000
 443,375        450,000
 446,952        460,000
 447,806        470,000
 449,127       
 449,967       
 450,260       
 463,056       
 463,435       
 463,767       



What is wrong with this formula?

=countifs(A1:A14,>B1,A1:A14,<B2)

To make sure all values are counted you need one of the ">" or "<" to include an =, otherwise any value in column A that falls exactly on the boundary, e.g. 420,000, won't fall in any bucket. so a small modification to Thomas's suggestion...

=COUNTIFS(A:A,">="&B1,A:A,"<"&B2)

Another option is to run a pivot table with your numbers as row fields, grouped by 10000, and your numbers as data field with a count.
