Hi All,

Is there an easy way of counting the number of instances certain dates appear in a range?

I am using this formula:
{=(COUNTIF(LABS!\$A\$5:\$A\$21,">=1/5/2006")-COUNTIF(LABS!\$A\$5:\$A\$21,">=1/6/2006"))}
to count the number of times any date in May 2006 appears in the range.

It seems overly complicated!

Any suggestions?

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.

Here is another suggestion, but it is not much (if any) simpler than your solution:
=SUMPRODUCT(--(MONTH(LABS!\$A\$5:\$A\$21)=5),--(YEAR(LABS!\$A\$5:\$A\$21)=2006))

Not sure what you mean by overly complicated, but entered with just Enter

=SUMPRODUCT((\$A\$5:\$A\$21-DAY(\$A\$5:\$A\$21)+1=\$B1)+0)

Where B1 houses the first day of the month you're trying to count.

...or

=SUMPRODUCT(--(TEXT(Labs!\$A\$5:\$A\$21,"m-yy")="5-06"))

Thanks everyone!
