COUNT statement based on 2 criteria

COUNT statement based on 2 criteria

COUNT statement based on 2 criteria


I am trying to put a formula into a worksheet that will count the number of cells, on a separate worksheet, which meet two criteria - namely place name and type.

I have tried the following;

=SUM(('Weekly Referrals '!B:B="Barwood")*('Weekly Referrals '!E:E="S"))

All I get from the result is 0.

Any help would be appreciated!!


RE: COUNT statement based on 2 criteria

Use the DCOUNT(database,field,criteria) function.

RE: COUNT statement based on 2 criteria


You can probably use your formula, provided you enter it as an array formula (press Ctrl-Enter after entering the formula, instead of Enter)
DCOUNT is better, because it is faster. Array formulas tend to get very slow if you have a lot of data.


Please see FAQ731-376 for tips on how to make the best use of Eng-Tips.

RE: COUNT statement based on 2 criteria

If you have hassle with use of DCount can add another column in parallel, eg in G1 put

Then where you want the total use

RE: COUNT statement based on 2 criteria

Perhaps it is little bit late. But just look at Thread770-85502
