# incorperate countif( into a formula range

Hi Everyone,

I want to incorperate a countif into a forumla range.

e.g. in column A we have v1,2,3,4,5, or 6. countif(v1) returns 84.

so, in column B we then want to say countif(F23:F(23+84),">0"), therefore counting how many entries in column B are greater than 0 that are also in the range F23:F107

any solutions would be gratefully accepted!

thanks very much

lewis

Do you mean?

=COUNTIF(OFFSET(F23,0,0,84),">0")

The 84 can be a cell reference.

D1

=SUMPRODUCT(--(\$A\$1:\$A\$14=C1),--(\$B\$1:\$B\$14>0))

where C1 houses "v1"

Hi,

thanks very much for that - worked a treat!

just a quick query, what do the "--" signs do within the brackets? ive found that when you take them away the formula returns 0, but you can take just one of them away leaving a single "-" and it still works?

Thanks again
