I need a count if formula where in Column A I have a name and Column B I have a value. I need a formula so that if A = a certain name it will return a 1 (just a simple count function) and if it doesn't have a value in Column B then it will return a 0.

Do you want to do that for the whole column? This will count rows that have your designated name in column A and where the corresponding row in column B is not blank

=COUNTIFS(A:A,D2,B:B,"<>")

where your name to count is in D2

I think I would modify that so that for column B to return a 1 if the name is found and there are more than one occurrences of that name having a value that's not blank, and 0 if there are no matches of that kind, you would need:

=IF(COUNTIFS(A:A,D2,B:B,"<>")>0,1,0)
