I have multiple spreadsheets in a
workbook and I would like the following in basic
worksheet1(cell)A3, appears in ‘worksheet2’ column B – count how many times it appears in column b ‘worksheet 2’
So in other words – Lets say
A3 = BOB smith – in work sheet 1
and appears 4 times in worksheet 2 – I want the formula to count the fact that
A3 ‘Bob smith’ is in worksheet 2 4 times, and come back and tell me 4.
I have attempted to do separate calculations – with use of Vlookups – then in another cell to count/do if statement
=COUNTIF(VLOOKUP(A9,'To retire'!J:J,9,1)) =IF(J228=O233, 'worksheet2'!F440,0) =VLOOKUP(A3,'worksheet2'!A:A,1,1)
Help would be very much appreciated, I am very stuck – I am unsure if I am looking into this too deeply or not enough! Thank you in advance
This is trivial when you use
SUMPRODUCT. Por ejemplo:
You could put the above formula in cell B3, where A3 is the name you want to find in
=COUNTIF() Is the function you are looking for
In a column adjacent to Worksheet1 column A:
This will search worksheet 2 ALL of column B for whatever you have in cell A3
See the MS Office reference for =COUNTIF(range,criteria) here!
You can combine this all into one formula, but you need to use a regular
IF first to find out if the
VLOOKUP came back with something, then use your
COUNTIF if it did.
In this case, Sheet2-A1:A9 is the range I was searching, and Sheet1-B1 had the value I was looking for (“To retire” in your case).
=IF(NOT(ISERROR(MATCH(A3,worksheet2!A:A,0))),COUNTIF(worksheet2!A:A,A3),"No Match Found")
If your are referring to two worksheets please use this formula
In case referring to to more than two worksheets please use this formula
=COUNTIF(Worksheet2!$A$1:$A$50,Worksheet1cellA1)+=COUNTIF (Worksheet3!$A$1:$A$50,Worksheet1cellA1)+= COUNTIF(Worksheet4!$A$1:$A$50,Worksheet1cellA1)
