Hi,

Your COUNTIF() formula should look something like this:

=COUNTIF(A1:A5,">=2013-05-31 04:00:00.000")

or for dates greater than, or equal to, 1 June 2013 at 7:24am exactly:

=COUNTIF(A1:A5,">=2013-06-01 07:24:00.000")

BFN,

fp.

Hi,

You could use

=COUNTIF(A1:A5,">="&DATEVALUE("2013-06-01 07:24"))

if that doesn't work ( it depends on your localization for me it would be "1.6.2013 07:24")

put the Date in another cell for example C1 and then

=COUNTIF(A1:A5,">="&C1)

Regards

If you get zero it may be that your date/time values are text formatted - try converting by doing this:

Select column of data then use

Data > text to columns > finish

Now try fanpages' suggestion again

alternatively try this version without converting

=SUMPRODUCT((A1:A5+0>C1)+0)

where C1 contains your cutoff date/time

regards, barry
