Hi,

 

You have to make the criteria range absolute (Locked) by preceding the row and column references by the dollar sign as follows:

=COUNTIF($A$2:$R$155,B2)

 

This will prevent the range from changing when copying the formula down.

To learn more about that, please check out this link.

 

Hope that helps

wow!
it worked.

thanks
