I have data in C2:C14 and D2:D14. I want Excel to count the number of instances in which the value in column C matches the value in that row in column D. What's the easiest way?

Thanks so much--you guys are always awesome!

You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK
Awesome, why does it work tho?

Because I told it to.:LOL:


It creates an array of True or False results based on the expression C2:C14=D2:D14.
Evaluating each row 1 at a time, does C2 = D2 ? Does C3 = D3?
With a True or False result for each row

The -- converts those True/False results into 1/0 results (True = 1, False = 0)
Then it sums the results.
