- range1—The group of cells to count.
- criterion1—The value that determines which cells in the range will be counted; for example: 15, "Hello World!", or >25.
Additional groups of cells and their criteria.
- For criterion, acceptable operators include: = (equal to), <> (not equal to), > (greater than), < (less than), >= (greater than or equal to), <= (less than or equal to).
- Blank cells aren't counted when using <> (not equal to). For example, the formula =COUNTIFS(Item:Item, <> "Shirt",Warehouse:Warehouse, <> "Chicago") won't count any blank cells that exist in the Item and Warehouse columns.
This example references the following sheet information:
|Clothing Item||Transaction Total||Units Sold||In Stock?|
Given the table above, here are some examples of using COUNTIFS in a sheet:
|=COUNTIFS([Units Sold]:[Units Sold], > 50, [In Stock?]:[In Stock?], 1)||Count the number of rows where the value in the “Units Sold” column is greater than 50, and the “In Stock?" checkbox is checked. Rows 1 and 3 meet the criteria.||2|
|=COUNTIFS([Clothing Item]:[Clothing Item], "Jacket", [In Stock?]:[In Stock?], 1)||Count the number of rows where value in the “Clothing Item” column is “Jacket,” and the “In Stock?” checkbox is checked. Row 3 meets the criteria.||1|
|=COUNTIFS([Transaction Total]:[Transaction Total], > 1000, [Units Sold]:[Units Sold], < 50)||Count the number of rows where the value in the “Transaction Total” column is greater than 1,000, and the value in the “Units Sold” column is less than 50. Row 2 meets the criteria.||1|
