If I have Three sheets.  One called summary and one called Jan and one called feb

I would like to count how many times the name John Doe and jane Doe appears in the sheet Jan and FEB and sum it up in the sheet Summary.

I have attached a sheet as an example.

Is there a way to do this??

You could use the following to search for and count instances of "John Doe" on the January sheet:

=COUNTIF(Jan!1:1048576,"John Doe")
