Excelchat Expert

Excelchat Expert

Excelchat Expert
08/04/2018 - 04:37

let me check the formula

User
08/04/2018 - 04:38

i can tell you what it does if you need it

Excelchat Expert
08/04/2018 - 04:38

YES plz

User
08/04/2018 - 04:40

it sums the time in a column that meets both criteria

User
08/04/2018 - 04:40

1 criteria is a number between 1-5 and the other is a date range

Excelchat Expert
08/04/2018 - 04:42

you need to put one extra column

User
08/04/2018 - 04:42

what for?

Excelchat Expert
08/04/2018 - 04:42

and you need to put IF formula there

Excelchat Expert
08/04/2018 - 04:42

the condition must be same which you have put in SUMIFS

Excelchat Expert
08/04/2018 - 04:42

and when the condition is TRUE put 1 in cell otherwise 0

Excelchat Expert
08/04/2018 - 04:43

then simple use COUNTIF formula in column next to it

User
08/04/2018 - 04:43

well i did say i want to turn my sumifs into a countifs

Excelchat Expert
08/04/2018 - 04:43

does this make sense?

User
08/04/2018 - 04:45

no i dont want to have another column in the sheets or workbooks that the data is located in i just want to count every time my sumifs adds a number to the total

Excelchat Expert
08/04/2018 - 04:46

to use COUNTIFS

Excelchat Expert
08/04/2018 - 04:46

here is the syntax

Excelchat Expert
08/04/2018 - 04:46

COUNTIFS(criteria_range1, criteria1, [criteria_range2, criteria2]…)

User
08/04/2018 - 04:47

i get thae syntax for countifs i thought you might be able to turn my sumifs formula directly into a countifs because the criteria to check is exactly the same for both formula
