    COUNTIF Problem (2000)

    I am trying to count the number of cells that contain <90, <60, and <30. When I use COUNTIF(E1:E300,"<90") I don't get any count. I think COUNTIF is looking for a value less than 90, 60, or 30 but I want to count those that contain <30 as a text entry.

    You can use =COUNTIF(E1:E300,"=<90")

    Thanks. Does the = tell Excel to look at the next character as a literal instead of an operand?

    It boils down to that, yes. It tells Excel that the cell value must be equal to what follows =.
