COUNTIFs are slowing a spreadsheet down terribly. Need and alternative formula or method
Solved by C. C. in 17 mins
I'm using a COUNTIFS statement that includes ">5/1/2017". It is working fine, and it is used in several cells. I would like to be able to put whatever date in a cell, and reference that cell instead - so that I can update that date once instead of editing all the formulas. When I try this, the formula doesn't work correctly; I suspect because it doesn't realize that cell's contents should be handled as a date. Any advice?

I have a spreadsheet that i trying to mine the data. i want to know how many tests were run per day. problem is there are multiple data points that makes the data look bigger then it is. I'm trying to pull a"600" out using countifs but i found i have more then one 600 per test. Pressure goes up to 600-605 or so and then back down. so there might be two 600's per test. only need to count one.

I'm trying to use a countifs formula and it's just not working. Ive tried: =COUNTIFS(H3761:27790, M3761, G3761:27790, "MG") =COUNTIFS(H3761:27790,"*"&M3761&"*", G3761:27790, "*"&$R$1&"*") =COUNTIFS(H3761:27790,"*"&M3761&"*", G3761:27790, "*"&MG&"*")

I need a formula that will pull items from a certain column, depending on two other criteria related to two other columns, and print out every instance that matches all of the above once and only once, and stop printing when all instances are printed. Currently have been relying on this for half of the job (printing one, and only one, instance of every unique element), but have not been able to incorporate the other two criteria: =ArrayFormula(index(RawData!$E$2:$E$500000, match(0, COUNTIFS($C$1:$C12,RawData!$E$2:$E$5000),0)))

I need a formula for the following: I want to count how many values in A3:A225 exactly match values in Z3:Z225 that are greater than 0, for people who are age 55 (I have a separate column AK3:AK225 that lists ages). I thought I could use =IFERROR(COUNTIFS($Z$3:$Z$225,$AH$3:$AH$225",$AK$3:$AK$225,"=55",$AH$3:$AH$225,">0"),0) but this keeps returning 0 and I know there should be at least 1 match. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!
