counting the # of items in a w/s column (xp & 2003)
I would like to get a count of items in a works sheet given two or more criteria. For instance, if a 3 columns has 20 rows and I want to count the number of times col. A and col B have the criterion of the Fruit "Apples" Col A and the color "Red" Col B if the "Quantity" in Col C is greater than 15. I can't quite get it figured out.
Thank you

Re: counting the # of items in a w/s column (xp & 2003)
Youcan use a formula like this:
=SUMPRODUCT((A1:A20="Apples")*(B1:B20="Red")*(C1:C 20>15))
If row 1 has column headers, use A2:A20 etc.

Re: counting the # of items in a w/s column (xp & 2003)
I'm sorry. I did not state the objective clearly. I wanted to count each row that had "red" "Apples" as a 1 and there for get an item count of the "Red" "Apple" items. Is this a different formula?
Thanks again.

Hi
If you just want to count for "Red" in ColB and "Apples" in col A and drop your criteria of >15 in col C, drop the last range from Hans' formula
(C1:C20>15)
the formula change to
=SUMPRODUCT((A1:A20="Apples")*(B1:B20="Red"))
** Sumproduct will affect recalculation time if your data is large.
another way is to use Auto Filter and put a formula =SUBTOTAL(3,a2:a20)
HTH

And if you want to count the red apples then try
=SUMPRODUCT((A1:A20="Apples")*(B1:B20="Red")*C1:C2 0)

With column C containing quantities of fruit, Stuart's formula calculates the total quantity (count) of red apples, whereas the formulas previously suggested counted the number of rows that have "red" and "apples".

that's correct! Stuart's formula does the summing on col C whereas, the earlier formula did the counting based on the 2 criteria
