Counting Names in one column, only IF there is a date entered into another column

Hi Guys,

Just joined the forum so I could post a question as I've searched for an answer to this on the net and couldn't find it.

I have a spreadsheet with employee names (Advisors) in one column (H) and when the advisor generates a new client application we put the application date in another column (T).

What I need to be able to do is count the number of applications each advisor has (broken down into each month) and keep count as dates are added.

If tried CountIFS and read some solutions with SUMPRODUCT but not managed to adapt it for my needs and kept getting errors, I know some of the basics with excel but am a bit of a novice (especially compared to you guys).

Any help greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the MrExcel board!

Would Excel's Pivot Table feature be sufficient?
Assuming the columns between H & T also have data you can create it directly as shown below. If blank columns between then post back for a work-around if you think this might be useful.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the reply, yes it might do the trick, mine doesnt display as yours in the picture but it does give me the data so that's great.

I'm struggling to get it to display by month though so i've inserted a timeline, that doesn't show all the months side by side though. Propably just need to hit a button somewhere.

Thanks so much.
