COUNTIFS function

2016-07-07

This function will conditionally count items in a range based on given criteria.

Syntax

COUNTIFS(Range 1, Criteria 1, Range 2, Criteria 2,…)

  • Range 1 (required) – This is the range to which the first criteria is applied.
  • Criteria 1 (required) – This is the criteria Range 1 has to satisfy to be included in the count.
  • Range 2, Range 3,… (optional) – These are more criteria ranges that can be used.
  • Criteria 2, Criteria 3,… (optional) – These are more criteria to which the associated range has to satisfy to be included in the count.

Example

In this example we count up the number of people in each job and company. Note that something is only counted when both criteria are met at the same time and not when one criteria is met and the other is not.

=COUNTIFS($A$2:$A$7, E2,$B$2:$B$7,F2)
