=+COUNTIF(AC710:BG710,"*am*")+COUNTIF(AC710:BG710,"*pm*")+COUNTIF(AC710:BG710,"*audit*")-COUNTIF(AC710:BG710,"*redo*")-COUNTIF(AC710:BG710,"*pre-training*") when I use this formula, Excel won't accept it but does not say there is an error in it. If I change the ranges to search from AD : BG, then it works. Any idea why?

I am getting a "0" return on my =COUNTIF feature. I am trying to get a count of unique text values within a given range, removing duplicates, using the formula =COUNTIF(A2:A138,B2), whereas the "B" column is the column containing only the unique text fields.

I am trying to count numbers in a column if they are less than or equal to a value in C20. It works when I do "=" but not when I combine with less than. What am I doing wrong? =COUNTIF(\$H\$26:\$H\$67,"<="&C20)
