I have a small Investment spreadsheet. Currently I'm tracking six symbols. One column, H5 - H10, tracks the change for each symbol. I'm trying to do two basic things, count the number of winners and count the number of losers in cells B13 and B14 and secondly, total the winnings and loses in B15 and B16.

I'm trying =COUNTIF(H5,<0,"") for the losers but it's not working. BTW - is there a SUMIF () for the totals ?

The COUTIF() function only has 2 parameters: **range** and **criteria**

The formula will work is you select the collection of cells containing winners as losers, making that your range (H5:H10) and your criteria to "L"

We may only make a guess where is what in your data. If H5:H10 is the range with numbers in dollars, when number of losers

=COUNTIF(H5:H10,"<0")

and for winners

=COUNTIF(H5:H10,">0")

Thanks so much Sergei, the formulas worked perfect.

In order to total the numbers for losers and winners, is there an IF statement I use, perhaps =SUMIF () ?
