Happy new Year EE community

is there a formula to do this?

column 'D' contains text. i.e. Mon, Tues, Wed, etc

so, if D6=Mon and G6 is blank do not count

if D6=Mon and G6 is not blank count it

so, if D16=Wed and G16 is blank do not count

if D16=Wed and G16 is not blank count it

So what I want to end up with is a table that will show me

Mon = 10
Tues = 4
Wed = 9

etc

Obviously I can't use Countblank as I need to count items in two columns

Thanks

You can do an if statement that says IF column D has a value, and column G has a value then to place a 1 in a hidden column farther to the right in the spreadsheet, and then have a SUM statement where you want your total count to show up that counts the values in the hidden column.
