Hi all,

Having a senior moment.

What I have is a list of outlets in column A and then, in columns B, C and D a 1 if they stock a particular model (one column for each model).

What I want to do is to count the number of times that an outlet stocks at least one of the models. That is to say, if the sum of columns B, C and D is 1 or more, count it.

Ideas greatly received.

Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Thanks guys. I adapted Mr Kowz's formula as follows:

=SUMPRODUCT(--((INDIRECT("'"&A9&"'!B3:B1000")+INDIRECT("'"&A9&"'!C3:C1000")+INDIRECT("'"&A9&"'!D3:D1000"))>=1)*--(INDIRECT("'"&A9&"'!A3:A1000")<>""))

Where A9 contains the country name of the sheet I am looking at and I then used the final look at column A to avoid the totals (the number of rows could change but would never be more than 1000).

Thanks for your swift help.

Your formula should work OK as it is...... but note that it's bad practice to use *-- in any formula

Either use a syntax like

=SUMPRODUCT((A2:A10="x")*(B2:B10="y"))

or

=SUMPRODUCT(--(A2:A10="x"),--(B2:B10="y"))
