conditional count function

Occasional Visitor

I am Trying to build a formula that counts the amount of times a TODAY() appears, on the condition that another cell on its row displays a certain text

 

IE

 

In cell J1 i want to have a total count if Cell I5: = TODAY() and Cell M5 = "MOVE TO ALT DATE"

i want to be able to have this calculation roll down the sheet

 

any ideas

Hi @samhatchernz 

 

you can use the COUNTIFS function to do this:

=COUNTIFS(I5:I19;TODAY();M5:M19;"MOVE TO ALT DATE")

 

You just need to adjust the ranges, so they fit your needs. Just note, that both ranges (in my example I5:I19 and M5:M19) need to have the same size. In other words, they need to cover the same number of lines, otherwise it will not work.
