Hi Experts  EXCEL 2010

Need a countifs formula to do the following:

If cell A1 sheet apple is red, then look in sheet pivot column b2  ('pivot'!b15:b200) range formula. And count all the reds in the data range and also look in column  g2 ('pivot'!g15;g200) formula..and count the "(blank)"..to return the result.


Apologies  unable to upload sample file.
