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 returned as the answer. Is this possible? Thanks  Andy

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))  Biff Microsoft Excel MVP "AndyW" wrote in message ...

Try this (based on your example):
=SUMPRODUCT((A1:A6="Blay")*(B1:B6="Y")) Regards, Tom "AndyW" wrote: 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.
