Hi all. I need Excel to count lines that include the phrase "test & 10", but not to count other lines that only have the word "test" without the & 10
I'm finding that I get zero results for "test & 10" as the keyword 'test' is filtered out in the 1st argument.
The formula I've tried is:

=COUNTIFS(Sheet2!$A:$A,Sheet1!A1,Sheet2!$D:$D,"<>*care*")+COUNTIFS(Sheet2!$A:$A,Sheet1!A1,Sheet2!$D:$D,"*&*")

any suggestions?

Hi, From the problem you described below should work:

<b></b><table cellpadding="2.5px" rules="all" style=";background-color: rgb(255,255,255);border: 1px solid;border-collapse: collapse; border-color: rgb(187,187,187)"><colgroup><col width="25px" style="background-color: rgb(218,231,245)" /><col /><col /><col /></colgroup><thead><tr style=" background-color: rgb(218,231,245);text-align: center;color: rgb(22,17,32)"><th></th><th>A</th><th>B</th><th>C</th></tr></thead><tbody><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">1</td><td style=";">Something</td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td><td style="text-align: right;;">2</td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">2</td><td style=";">something something test</td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">3</td><td style=";">something something test & 11</td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">4</td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">5</td><td style=";">something something test & 10</td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">6</td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td></tr><tr ><td style="color: rgb(22,17,32);text-align: center;">7</td><td style=";">something something test & 10</td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td><td style="text-align: right;;"></td></tr></tbody></table><p style="width:4.8em;font-weight:bold;margin:0;padding:0.2em 0.6em 0.2em 0.5em;border: 1px solid rgb(187,187,187);border-top:none;text-align: center;background-color: rgb(218,231,245);color: rgb(22,17,32)">Sheet1</p><br /><br /><table width="85%" cellpadding="2.5px" rules="all" style=";border: 2px solid black;border-collapse:collapse;padding: 0.4em;background-color: rgb(255,255,255)" ><tr><td style="padding:6px" ><b>Worksheet Formulas</b><table cellpadding="2.5px" width="100%" rules="all" style="border: 1px solid;text-align:center;background-color: rgb(255,255,255);border-collapse: collapse; border-color: rgb(187,187,187)"><thead><tr style=" background-color: rgb(218,231,245);color: rgb(22,17,32)"><th width="10px">Cell</th><th style="text-align:left;padding-left:5px;">Formula</th></tr></thead><tbody><tr><th width="10px" style=" background-color: rgb(218,231,245);color: rgb(22,17,32)">C1</th><td style="text-align:left">=COUNTIF(<font color="Blue">$A$1:$A$7,"*test & 10*"</font>)</td></tr></tbody></table></td></tr></table><br />

Hi Aryatect. This almost works - it is now counting everything that says "test & 10" but is not counting lines that do not have 'test'.
In your above sheet, if line A4 and A6 had text, the formula won't count them.

So, if I fill in the above matrix with the below, the answer in C1 is still 2 when it should be 5 (formula would count line 1,4,5,6,7)
ABC
1Something2
2something something test
3something something test & 11
4any other text
5something something test & 10
6other stuff
7something something test & 10

<tbody>
</tbody>

Awesome, thank you! I had tried to add the CountIfs, but I had the syntax wrong to exclude the word "test". Thank you so much
