Hi

i think this is an easy one, but not so easy for me.

is it possible to count a value in each column per row of the range , and then move on to the next row looking for the same?

for example:

Code:
target number: 123 

123 456 345 <-- 123 shows here
123 445 271 <-- 123 shows here
445 445 255 
636 636 300
300 123 123 <-- 123 shows here

so we have three columns wide and 5 rows deep. 123 appears in 3 of the rows (what i want to find) although it appears within the entire range a total of 4 times.

TIA!

Try this formula
I turned it from Finnish language into English formula, so I hope it's right.

Code:
=IF(SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A5=A9))=0,0,1)+IF(SUMPRODUCT(--(B5:B5=A9))=0,0,1)+IF(SUMPRODUCT(--(C1:C5=A9))=0,0,1)

In A9 I have 123

Thanks for the responses. The formulas are just what the doctor ordered for the overweight and out of shape spreadsheet
