how to i right a function that will count the number of rows in each column with a specific identifier in another? in the sheet uploaded i was to count the number of rows (or cells filled) in each column from "list view" that have the same value in column a. I know i can just do (counta(value_range) but I don't want to go through and manually type that in for each identifier.

I've put a formula into a column of cells. It's a simple product formula, but everytime I put the value into the cell, it simply erases the formula, rather than let it do its magic. (It's the Automotive column, L)

I am trying to use the following formula to sum a column of six items if any item is nonzero but show nothing if they are all zero. If the first, second or sixth item is nonzero, it works. But if the those three are zero, the sum ignores the third, fourth, and fifth items. Here is the formula: =IF(N(F56)*N(\$J\$2)+N(F57)*N(\$J\$3)+N(F58)*N(\$J\$4)+N(F59)*(\$J\$5)+N(F60)*N(\$J\$6)+N(F61)*N(\$J\$7)=0,"",SUM(F56:F61))
