# Array Formula Using Two Columns And Countif

May 11, 2006

Having trouble getting Excel to compute a value based on two columns on another sheet. What I need it to do is see if column A has the value I specify, then look in column B and see if that date figure is greater than 180 days, and then count it. So I might have 45 that meet criteria A, but then need to find items in that subset that meet criteria B...

## Can You Use Countif In An Array Formula

May 5, 2008

Lets say I have 30 rows of numbers in two columns. I know I can multiply each number together in each row with an array formula ={A1:A30*B1:B30}

Question:

Given the same ranges, except no numbers but just the text 'x'. some rows have 1 x some have 2 some have none.

Can I use 'Countif(A1:B1,"x")' in an array formula and if so how would that be structured?

## Array Formula To Sum Columns?

Mar 11, 2014

In the first row of my table are the targets for each period of the year and in the second row is the actual performance. The targets for the year will be populated throughout but only periods so far will have a figure for the actual performance.

Thus I have an array formula below:

Which tells me what the last period's target or performance was (depending on which row number I use).

But when I try to sum it, to find the total for the year to date:

I get an error. How can I do this?

## Array Formula Across Multiple Columns

Feb 22, 2010

In the attached file on the Final Lists tab I have an Array formula in each column.
My problem is that I need to extend this to cover approx 500 columns. Is there any way that I can cut'n'paste or drag the formula across all the 500 columns, have my references increase with each new column, but also retain my \$ references (ie my formula format)?

As it is, I am facing having to either type or correct each and every one of the 500 columns. As you can see, I am a little bit of a newbie when it comes to the intricacies of excel.

## Using Array Formula On Columns With Different Lenghts

Feb 12, 2009

I want to use following array formula: {=SUM(SQRT((0.004)^2+(B\$2:B10-B\$1:B9)^2))}

on columns B till U. In the case of column B, the end of the column is at row 10. However, the lenght of the columns varies, so row 10 won't be the end of the column for column C. So for column C the above formula doesn't work anymore.
The beginning of all columns is the same, hence the '\$'. Is there a way to change 'B10' and 'B9' in this formula into 'end of column' and 'end of column minus one'? Cause I would like to use the same formula for all columns.

## Using Array Formula To Sort Alphabetically Over Multiple Columns

Feb 14, 2014

In the attached example file, I have two tabs: options and sets. The options tab is to be populated from a form. The sets tab is to draw data from the options tab to create teaching sets. I have managed to create an array formula that does this for me, but what I would like it to do is sort my resulting list alphabetically. For reasons that I won't go into, I need the data on the sets tab to remain in three columns: First Name, Surname and Form.

This is the array formula I am using at the moment: AliGW - Example.xlsx

## Extract Unique Distinct List From Two Columns With Array Formula And Sort From A To Z

May 30, 2014

I have two lists in different columns, which are defined ranges. I want to extract them to a unique list with an array formula and at the same time sort albafetically, without duplicates, like this:

List1
List2

Final List

Audi
Ford

[Code] ....

So far, I have this formula which is working in what concerns removing duplicates and exctract a unique list. But it is not ordering alfabeticaly.

{=IFERROR(IFERROR(INDEX(List1, MATCH(0, COUNTIF(\$D\$1:D1, List1), 0)), INDEX(List2, MATCH(0, COUNTIF(\$D\$1:D1, List2), 0))), "")}

## Using Countif Function For Certain Array

May 2, 2014

I want to use the countif function for a certain array. The range is set by another cell which is made up out of a percentile of an entire row.

The problem is is that excel doesn't see the value it displays so i continuously get a value of 0 in the countif cell. If i fill in the range by hand, which is exactly the same range as the outcome of the percentile the countif cell does give the correct value.

So in short the problem is i guess that the countif cell does not recognize the value because this value is made up by a formula.

## Countif Array With Multiple Criteria?

Sep 13, 2012

=COUNTIF(A\$2:T\$1001,V2 & W2 & X2 & Y2)

I want to copy and paste this formula down column Z.

I want to count or add 1, only when a row of 20 cells (A to T) contains all 4 criteria in V W X Y.

## Using Multiple Sum Ranges In Sumproduct() & Countif() In Array

Jul 2, 2009

My problem is :

1.In G Column I put logic for Fail and Obtained Marks.

G2=IF(COUNTIF(B2:F2,">=60")=5,SUM(B2:F2),"Fail")

2. Now in H column I want use this formula which I obtained from this forum

H2=SUMPRODUCT((G\$2:G\$7>G2)/COUNTIF(G\$2:G\$7,G\$2:G\$7&""))+1

To get the position of Students.

But the text value "fail" in the G2:G7 getting Position No. 1 and i've noticed the reason by using evaluate formula as well.

3. I got solution by changing "Fail" with 0 by creating column I and then column H put this formula ........

## Using Multipel Sum Ranges In Sumproduct() & Countif In Array

Jul 6, 2009

I want to get students positions in a class like 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. There can be two 1st position and 2 2nd positions at a time .

1.In G Column I put logic for Fail and Obtained Marks.
G2=IF(COUNTIF(B2:F2,">=60")=5,SUM(B2:F2),"Fail")
2. Then i made array formula in column H to get the position
={SUMPRODUCT((IF(ISNUMBER(\$G\$2:\$G\$7),\$G\$2:\$G\$7,0)>N(G2))/COUNTIF(G\$2:G\$7,G\$2:G\$7&""))+1}
Some improvement to write fail & position
={IF(COUNTIF(B3:F3,">=60")5,"Fail",SUMPRODUCT((IF(ISNUMBER(\$G\$2:\$G\$7),\$G\$2:\$G\$7,0)>N(G3))/COUNTIF(G\$2:G\$7,G\$2:G\$7&""))+1)}
And more work to get total marks & position and Fail at the same time......
={IF(COUNTIF(B2:F2,">=60")5,"Fail",SUM(B2:F2)&"-"&SUMPRODUCT((IF(ISNUMBER(\$G\$2:\$G\$7),\$G\$2:\$G\$7,0)>N(G2))/COUNTIF(G\$2:G\$7,G\$2:G\$7&""))+1)}
Now I wounder that is there a way to do all calculations in column H without using column G

By replacing (if there is any method) G2, G3, G4 etc. with Sum(B2:F2); Sum(B3:F3);Sum(B4:F4) etc. in below formula
={SUMPRODUCT((IF(ISNUMBER(\$G\$2:\$G\$7),\$G\$2:\$G\$7,0)>N(G2))/COUNTIF(G\$2:G\$7,G\$2:G\$7&""))+1}.....................

## Using COUNTIF To Return Matching Array Values With A CONDITION

May 9, 2014

I'm having a difficult time returning COUNTIF values for a positive match between 2 columns THAT meet a certain condition. Basically I want to iterate through column A sheet 1 (ONLY for values where column B is paid) and return a count for every instance there is a match of value A sheet 1 in column A sheet 2. In other words, I'm looking to find the number of ids marked as paid from Column A sheet 1 that exist in Column A sheet 2. I don't wish to return the actual ids, just the total count.

I've tried the following but I know there's an error in iterating through Column A the way I have it:

=COUNTIFS(Sheet1!\$ColA:\$ColA,Sheet2!\$ColA:\$ColA,Sheet1!\$ColB:\$ColB,"paid")

Sheet1:
ColA
ColB

123
paid

[Code] .....

Sheet2:
ColA
ColB

23
NY

[Code] .....

## COUNTIF On Two Columns

Jan 27, 2009

I've been asked to extend the counting capabilities of my interface to pick up the profession of each person when they answer whatever is selected in the 'Interface' worksheet (cell B2) put them in my interface.

I've been trying various incarnations of SUMPRODUCT along with what DonkeyOte helped me with before, but currently no joy. Hope that makes sense - have a look at previous post for further details. I've attached an example to look at.

## Countif Different Columns

Jan 3, 2009

I have 16 columns with 10 rows with different single digits in them. I want to count the number of times the number 2 appears in columns A, C, E, G, I, K, M, O (in other words every other column in this case).

I know how to write the formula by using countif to find the results but it is rather long. The fomrula would look like this:

2-Jan 4523
3-Jan 4523
4-Jan 4501

## Converting 3x10 Array To A 1X30 Array To Run A Match Formula

Apr 7, 2009

Say I have 3 columns of data: A1:C10 and I want to run a Match() function on them all together to see if I get a match any one those cells, say the value of have in X1.

Since, Match only allows a One-Column lookup array.. is there a way to "concatenate" or "append" the 3 columns together within a formula so now I would be looking to Match in an array that is 1 column * 30 rows?

Basically want to convert =Match(X1,A1:C10,0) to =Match(X1,A1:A30,0) without moving around the raw data in the sheet.

And I want to avoid doing an AND or OR formula that uses 3 separate MATCH() for each column.

I have a hunch that the MMULT or MMULT/TRANSPOSE functions are involved, but can't seem to get it right.

## Countif With Conditions From Two Columns?

Dec 5, 2013

I have coded data for age range in one column and for answering yes or no to a question in a different column. I need a formula that will count the number of yes answers for each coded age range.

a= 14-15 years old, b=16-17, ect.

Column One Column Two
age(coded) Yes or No
a Y
a N
b N
c Y
a Y
b N

I need to be able to count the number of yeses for each coded age. If the formula works it should give me the following output given the sample data above.

14-15 year olds output with the data above would be 2

16-17 year olds output would be 0.

How would I write this formula? I tried countif and sumproduct (though admittedly sumproduct I don't know at all and just tried to find a similar situation and tried it with my spreadsheet).

## Countif But Columns Not Adjacent

## COUNTIF For Multiple Columns

Mar 19, 2009

I am trying to tally answers for a survey. Column A specifies one of 3 locations (Boulder, Larimer, Westminster) and column C specifies a grade for services between locations (Not Uniform, Slightly Uniform, Very Uniform). I was able to tally each separately using 'COUNTIF' and the conditions, but now I would like a total for each of the grades by location, i.e. a count of people answering both Boulder and Uniform, etc.

## How To Countif Columns Of Dates

Aug 10, 2009

I have three seperate Formulas on a summary page that will count dates depending on whether they will be approaching in the next month, whether todays date falls within them and if they are expired or are less than todays date.

Basically the form was developed to monitor a maintanence schedule and give a summary to the person in charge of cleaning so they can forecast there work load. I have managed to get the formula working for "whether todays date falls within them" ("# of Computers than can be cleaned today" as it appears on the summary form) but I cannot seem to get the other formulas figured out.. Well at least the formula that checks to see which computers are past due.

As far as the formula that checks to see which computers will need to be cleaned within the next month, I don't know how to make that work at all considering the setup of my Date input page.

## CountIf Blank With Two Columns

## COUNTIF On Multiple Columns

Jun 6, 2009

When using the following:

=COUNTIF(F6:F200,"G")
I get what I want.
What I can't figure out is, I want to get the count of columns G, J, N, and R which has the criterior that I'm looking for, added together for a total.

And in reality, the rows do not go down that far, but they might, so I put 200 in there to be safe.

## CountIF Combine The Results From Two Columns

Feb 15, 2009

I have two columns A and B. Column A contains 'Machine Nr' and column B contain 'Week Nr'. In cell C1 i want to write a function so that it counts the number of weeks in Column B where week number is 4 AND the machine nr is 1 in column nr A.

Column A Column B
Machine Nr Week Nr
1 4
1 4
2 4
2 4
3 4
3 4

## Countif With 2 Columns Of Data And No Duplicates

Dec 26, 2012

I would like to use the sumproduct or countif formula for a set of data. I have looked around the forum and have not found what I need so

Column A______Column B
West___________1
West___________2
West___________1
West___________2
South__________ 1
South__________2
South__________1
South__________2

I want to count column B for all "West" (column A) and I don't want duplicates. So it would count two unique characters for West and two unique characters for South. I want "west" and "south" separated.

## Only Countif Cells Adjacent To Columns Contains A Blank?

Apr 22, 2014

I have a formula (below) where I want it to count the cells that contain a date that is less than or equal to today, but only when the adjacent cell is blank. The latter part of the formula works, but I'm struggling to tell it to only do the count when cells in column I are blank;

=IF('QS12'!I10:I3120="",COUNTIF('QS12'!H10:H3120,">="&TODAY()))

## Countif Multiple Conditions: Look At Two Columns And Set A Criteria To Count

Jan 15, 2010

I want to be able to look at two columns and set a criteria to count. I want to look at column A and if its blank then look at column B and if it has a value of more than 0 then count.

A B
1 1.00
2 Yes 4.78
3
4 5.00
5 Yes 4.89
6 11.99

So this example would count 3

## Adding Today Formula In A Countif Formula

Dec 19, 2012

I have a spreadsheet that contains a list of dates: What I need is a formula that will count the number of cells that hava a date more than 6 months old. I also would like the field automated so I don't have to change the date manually every day.

=COUNTIF(S5:S593,"<2012/06/18") This formula will give the correct read out, but I must change the date manually.

My attempts at adding a =today() command in place of the date result in 0 being the result (not correct)

This is what I have tried: =COUNTIF(S5:S593,"<"=TODAY()-"183")
