# Countif - Counting where cells are equal?

#### Smokeyham

##### Board Regular
I thought this would be simple, but I seem to be missing something.

I want to count the number times the value in the cell in column R matches the same value of a cell in the same row in column A.

For instance

A1 = R1
A5 = R5
A93 = R93

Then the total will be three.

I've been trying to use the CountIf function - but is there another way to do this?

Thanks.....

Workdays for a market open Mon, Wed, Friday?
Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.
Try:

Code:
``=SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A93=R1:R93))``

or if you don't want to include blank cells:

Code:
``=SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A100=R1:R100),--(A1:A100<>""))``

AhoyNC,

Thanks so much! Just what I needed!

Try:

Code:
``=SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A93=R1:R93))``

or if you don't want to include blank cells:

Code:
``=SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A100=R1:R100),--(A1:A100<>""))``

You're welcome. Thanks for the feedback.
