COUNTIFS function counts the number of cells in a range, that meets a single or multiple criteria.
Excelchat Expert 17/12/2017 - 06:00
the syntax of that function is COUNTIFS( criteria_range1, criteria1, [criteria_range2, criteria2, ... criteria_range_n, criteria_n] )
Excelchat Expert 17/12/2017 - 06:02
criteria range 1 and criteria 1
Excelchat Expert 17/12/2017 - 06:02
then criteria range 2,3....n
Excelchat Expert 17/12/2017 - 06:02
same criteria 2,3,4,...n
Excelchat Expert 17/12/2017 - 06:04
so we can get our result as per our criteria and from criteria range
Excelchat Expert 17/12/2017 - 06:04
in your sheet the criteria is 'Parts NC Entry'!\$E\$2:\$E\$1934,
Excelchat Expert 17/12/2017 - 06:04
criteria range is 'Parts NC Entry'!\$E\$2:\$E\$1934,
Excelchat Expert 17/12/2017 - 06:04
and criteria is M
Excelchat Expert 17/12/2017 - 06:05
criteria range 2 is 'Parts NC Entry'!\$K\$2:\$K\$1934
Excelchat Expert 17/12/2017 - 06:05
criteria 2 is "x"
Excelchat Expert 17/12/2017 - 06:05
