Help needed urgently

Hi,

Im trying to check that one row of data satifies a criteria, then if it does
it counts an entry in another column adjescent to it.

Example: -

Column A - Column B
Blay - Y
Blay - N
Blay - Y
Chop - N
Chop - N
High - Y

What i would be asking (of a much bigger table) is If Column A = Blaydon and
then column B (same row) = Y, then count. In this example I would want 2
Is this possible?
Thanks

Try one of these...

Use cells to hold the criteria:

D2 = Blaydon
E2 = Y

If you're using Excel 2007 or later:

=COUNTIFS(A2:A7,D2,B2:B7,E2)

This will work in any (modern) version of Excel:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(A2:A7=D2),--(B2:B7=E2))

Try this (based on your example):

=SUMPRODUCT((A1:A6="Blay")*(B1:B6="Y"))
