Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Ian,

In A2
``````=IF(B2="","",COUNTIFS(\$B\$2:\$B\$28,B2,\$C\$2:\$C\$28,">0"))
``````
and copy it down.

Using your approach you can have this but this will have to be an array formula.

=IF(B2="","",COUNT(IF((\$B\$2:\$B28=B2)*(\$C\$2:\$C28>0),1,"")))

Another non-array formula approach could be

=IF(B2="","",SUMPRODUCT((\$B\$2:\$B\$28=B2)*(\$C\$2:\$C\$28<>0)))
