# Can I subtract two functions?

Hey!
So, I have a cell in my spreadsheet with the following function:
=COUNTIFS(\$O\$7:\$AX\$7,">="&\$A\$4,\$O\$7:\$AX\$7,"<="&\$B\$4)
It is counting the number of cells in the range O7 through AX 7 that contain dates that fall between the dates in A4 and B4. What I was wondering is if I can subtract another Count formula result from this one.

The other count formula is going to count the number of cells in the range O to AX that contain "S", so I'll probably use this formula:
=COUNTIF(O8:AX8,"S") for row 8 and ones like it for each row below.

Can I somehow combine these two formulas? Meaning, can I subtract the value from the CountIf formula from the value of the CountIfS formula?

Please let me know if you need more information. Also, is there a way to attach my spreadsheet so that you can look at it, or is that not something this site allows? Thanks in advance for the help!

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

That worked. Thanks! Sorry--seems so simple.

Thanks again!
