# Countifs

I am trying to use COUNTIFS in my spreadsheet.

I have 6 teams in AA3:AA8 and another column that lists the winner of each game (AL:AL) they play against each other, and another with the loser of the same game (AR:AR).

What I want to do is use COUNTIF to see how many wins each team has against each other. This is the formula I am using, but it isn't working:

=COUNTIFS(AL:AL,AA3,AR:AR,\$AA\$3:\$AA\$8)

I want it to find when the team in AA3 appears anywhere in AL:AL and any of the other teams appear in AR:AR.

Hope this is explained good enough.

Thanks

Try...

=SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIFS(AL:AL,AA3,AR:AR,\$AA\$3:\$AA\$8))

I tried that, but for some reason, it still returns "0".

I thought that formula would have worked (and you have never steered me wrong before Aladin )

It works with me. Team names in AA3:AA8 should math exactly those in AL and in AR. Watch out for spaces around the entries.

I'll have a closer look at it and let you know.
