Hi all,
I wanted to check if the teams this year have played in all the five previous years. I've attached a spreadsheet to show you what I've done. What I'm doing isn't working which is why I'm asking for help. I've used the function below.

=SUMPRODUCT(--('7-8'!$D$2:$D$307=B2),--('8-9'!$D$2:$D$307=B2),--('9-10'!$D$2:$D$307=B2),--('10-11'!$D$2:$D$307=B2),--('11-12'!$D$2:$D$307=B2))

B2 would be the team names cell.

The thing is that I had it working only for the bottom 3 teams at one stage but I know there are more teams that qualify.

Any help gratefully received.

Regards to all.
Dave

You can use:

=COUNTIF('7-8'!$D$2:$D$307,B2)+COUNTIF('8-9'!$D$2:$D$307,B2)+COUNTIF('9-10'!$D$2:$D$307,B2)+COUNTIF('10-11'!$D$2:$D$307,B2)+COUNTIF('11-12'!$D$2:$D$307,B2)

This counts the number of time the name appears in all the sheets.

If you want to simply count if they appear at least once in any sheet, then you can add >0 to each countif

e.g

=(COUNTIF('7-8'!$D$2:$D$307,B2)>0)+(COUNTIF('8-9'!$D$2:$D$307,B2)>0)+(COUNTIF('9-10'!$D$2:$D$307,B2)>0)+(COUNTIF('10-11'!$D$2:$D$307,B2)>0)+(COUNTIF('11-12'!$D$2:$D$307,B2)>0)

This will tell you how many of the 5 sheets the name appears in.
