Hi there,

My first question on EE!

I have a series of tables (see attached file) and I need to be able to  count the the number of times each value appears against their respective row headers and table footers.

For example - in the table there are Tables called 'Scenario 1', 'Scenario 2' and 'Scenario 3'.

I need to produce a Summary Tables that counts the number of times each number appears in all 3 scenario tables against the respective row and footer identifiers.

For example, in Scenario 1, the number 1 (see highlighted cells) is present as an E/L , as a P/M and as an E/T.
In Scenario 2, the number 1 is present as an P/M,  E/M and an E/T
In Scenario 3, the number 1 is present as a P/L, E/T and E/M.

What I really need is the for 'Summary' table to populate itself - so that I can change things around in the top 3 tables and try and balance out the Summary tables across the column headers.

This formula in D39 should give the correct results

=SUMPRODUCT(($D$5:$D$10=LEFT(D$38))*($E$11:$R$11=RIGHT(D$38))*($E$5:$R$10=$C39)+($D$16:$D$21=LEFT(D$38))*($E$22:$R$22=RIGHT(D$38))*($E$16:$R$21=$C39)+($D$27:$D$32=LEFT(D$38))*($E$33:$R$33=RIGHT(D$38))*($E$27:$R$32=$C39))

copy across and down - see attached

This assumes that all 3 tables are the same shape - if not then you can use a similar formula with 3 separate SUMPRODUCTS....

[Edit: 16 was missing from Summary table - I added it in]
