I have multiple columns with things I need to summarize, but here is a simplified version:
Test Group Scenario Test Result one a pass one b fail one c fail two a pass two b fail two c pass three a pass
And I have another Sheet (#2)
Test Group Passes Fails Total one # # # two # # # three # # #
I’m expecting results that look like:
Test Group Passes Fails Total one 1 2 3 two 2 1 3 three 1 0 1
I have been trying to create a formula which counts passes and fails in Sheet 1 based on the name of the Test Group in Sheet 2.
I’m not sure whether to use Count and If or CountIf or Countifs
I’ve resorted to something like =COUNTIF(‘Sheet 1’!C2:C4,”pass”) but this does not account for the possibility that more tests can be added later, and then I’d have to update each row in the summary to use new numbers.
Is there some simple way to do this?
I’m hoping for something that looks at the pair of data (test group, test result) and summarizes it.
(I tried http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel-help/count-how-often-a-value-occurs-HP010342339.aspx but that doesn’t seem to work for me)
Make this into a pivot table and you can do it quite easily
Insert>Pivot Table> select your range> click OK
Make the column/row/value labels look like in my picture
You can certainly use
I used this in the structure below:
The total shouldn’t be too difficult 🙂
