Hi,
I've been banging my head against my keyboard for the past two days about this coding. I need a cell to count a range of cells that have past due reports in it. The crutch of it is the range is not only dates the range will include some blank cells (individuals that do not own a specific report), Som cells containing "Q" (Completed reports), and some with a date entered as FEB2012. I need the cell to only count the cells in the range that have dates in them that are past due, I tried countif(range>TODAY()) or somthing alon those lines and the yield is #VALUE. PLEASE HELP ME!! ANYONE!! MAKE THE BANGING STOP!! PLEASE!! Thanks to anyone who can.

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

I try to resist condensing a solution to a problem down to a single cell result (often difficult to accomplish, and near on impossible to decompose to see what makes up the result.)<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
I'd suggest you use a spare column (assuming data is in rows) to assess whether or not the target cell for that individual is a date, and if so, is it past due. <o:p></o:p>
So, assuming the column containing dates, etc, is B, then:
  • In the first data row (say 2) of the spare column (say Z) enter:
=IF(AND(ISNUMBER(B2),B2< TODAY()),"Overdue","-")
[NOTE: ignore the space after the less than sign - it's req'd in this forum to save the less than symbol being seen as a HTML code!!:eek:]<?XML:NAMESPACE PREFIX = TODAY()),"Overdue","-")<o /><TODAY()),"Overdue","-")<o:p>
  • Copy this formula down to each data row<o:p></o:p>
  • In a cell other than in column Z, enter =Countif(Z:Z,”Overdue”) to count & return the number of individuals with overdue reports.<o:p></o:p>
  • You could also use Autofilter on column Z to display only those rows showing “Overdue”.<o:p></o:p>
</TODAY()),"Overdue","-")<o:p>
