Hi Experts using excel 2013

I have the following countifs formula which is returning 0 for July 2016 when in fact the correct answer is 17
=COUNTIFS('Master Data'!$R$2:$R$1000,AH$101,'Master Data'!$B$2:$B$1000,$AC100)

AC = Company Name
AH is 7 for month July

Does column R in Master Data contain just months or full dates?

If it is full dates, then looking for 7 will indeed produce 0, a date with serial number 7 was 7 Jan 1900.

Thanks
Rob

If column R has dates and AH101 has the month number, try it like this and see if that works for you....
=SUMPRODUCT((MONTH('Master Data'!$R$2:$R$1000)=AH$101)*('Master Data'!$B$2:$B$1000=$AC100))

Also, should there be a row difference for the Date value (AH101) and the Company value (AC100)?

Thanks
