    Countif ?? (Excel 97)

    What formula do I use to count the no. of entries greater than a cell?
    eg. the attached file has figures in A1:A16, I want cell B19 to return the number of values that are greater than the value in cell A19.
    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    The only way I know to do this is having another column witha n if statement saying tells you if the number is bigger or not and then counting those instances. I hacve attacched your sheet back already modified.

    The following should work : <pre> =COUNTIF(A1:A16,">"&A19)</pre>

    You need to concatentae the operator ,> and the cell address (or Value, really), which in your example sets the criteria as >30
