I have this badly designed table and I'm trying to calculate how many times people were off on a certain day of the week.
Countif struggles with blank rows (row 5) or ranges which are not equal.

So I want to create a table Monday to Sunday and calculate how many times employees were off on certain days. Note that this schedule is based on 2weeks range (B-F)

 Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday Eve 0 0 0 1 1 3 3

Thanks

### Excel Facts

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},\$Z\$1:\$Z\$99,\$Y\$1:\$Y\$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

Hello Indygo

I shall be assuming your Eve is at A12
Fill in this formula at B12:H12
=COUNTIFS(\$B\$4:\$O\$4,"Off",\$B\$1:\$O\$1,B\$11)+COUNTIFS(\$B\$9:\$O\$9,"Off",\$B\$6:\$O\$6,B\$11)

We'll be using 2 countifs formula

Thanks for response,

But you see, if I have 4 years of data I can't attach this formula separately to each name because it would take ages.
So I was hoping I could use countifs and just refer to names in that formula to calculate them automatically.
Your formula forces me to apply it manually to each row with name "Eve" manually.
