I wonder if anyone can help me..................

We have 3 people performing 3 different activities and I need to flag up the tenth time each activity has taken place per person.

I have tried to use the sumproduct and countif formulas but they don't seem to work, I can get them to count the total amount of activities per person but I need to break it up per person, per activity.

For example..... I need the formula to flag up every 3rd time Katherine is Swimming or Running or Walking.

Column A Column B

Katherine Swimming
Laura Walking
Sarah Walking
Laura Walking
Laura Walking
Emma Running
Katherine Swimming
Sarah Running
Sarah Running
Laura Swimming
Katherine Running
Katherine Swimming
Katherine Running


Please help us sort this out as its driving crazy!!!!

Thanks

Hi,

Try:

=(MOD(SUMPRODUCT(($A$1:A1=$F$1)*($B$1:B1=$F$2)),$F$3)=0)*(A1=$F$1)*(B1=$F$2)

In C1 and drag down.
