Excel 2010: Countif value = or > BUT do Not Count if Column X reflects a <string value>

Hi Experts, hoping someone might be able to expand to the below formula with the added logic indicated below.  


Open in new window

Basically counts all cells in column B that have a value equal to 14 and greater.

I'd like expand on this formula and add a little logic to it:

Equal to 14 or greater BUT if any of Column I's cells indicate the text string beginning with  "Incident Closed", then do not count that cell in Column B.

Hopefully that makes sense and is doable.  Any help is GREATLY APPRECIATED!

try COUNTIFS formula instead, like:

=COUNTIFS(rawdata!B2:B250,">=14",rawdata!I2:I250,"<>Incident Closed")

>>the text string beginning with  "Incident Closed"

so you have to try:

=COUNTIFS(rawdata!B2:B250,">=14",rawdata!I2:I250,"<>Incident Closed*")

If you are working on 2003 you can alternatively use this formula as this will work in all versions of excel..

=SUMPRODUCT((rawdata!B2:B250>=14)*(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Incident Closed",rawdata!I2:I250,1))))

Open in new window

In additional this will search for incident closed in the entire text doesn't matter if it's in the starting or at end..
