I have a formula, found elsewhere, that counts the totals of cells from current date – backwards for one year
=SUMIFS($L$5:$BDQ$5,$L$3:$BDQ$3,"<="&F37,$L$3:$BDQ$3,">="&DATE(YEAR(F37)-1,MONTH(F37),DAY(F37)))

Data in $L$5:$BDQ$5
Dates in ,$L$3:$BDQ$3
Todays date in $F$37

This works perfect for numerical values in the cells. However, I have a spread sheet that has “codes” as values in the cells: Two of the codes are “SO” & “S”. I need to count (sum) these as a rolling period from current date to one year previous
Code used for COUNTIF.
=COUNTIF(L5:BDQ5,"=SO")+COUNTIF(L5:BDQ5,"=S")

Unfortunately I cannot work out how integrate the COUNTIF instead of the SUMIFS

Probably just missing something simple? Any helps would be much appreciated

I think it would be helpful to see an example of your data, along with your expected results.

Maybe...

=SUM(COUNTIFS($L$5:$BDQ$5,{"S","SO"},$L$3:$BDQ$3,"<="&F37,$L$3:$BDQ$3,">="&DATE(YEAR(F37)-1,MONTH(F37),DAY(F37))))
