# Populating an Indicator (X) When Two Criteria Are Met

 Please see below table. I'm trying to assign an "X" in column NIS2 when any record sharing the same TRANS ID (column A) has an "X" in column NOT IN STOCK. My obstacle is some times the NOT IN STOCK column "X" may be the first, middle or last record for a given TRANS ID. My attempts using IF AND & OR combination formulas have had very limited success. Any insight is appreciated!

Hi, welcome to the board.

Should the results look like this . . .

TRANS ID SEQUENCE PART PART2 NOT IN STOCK NIS2
52268329 1 23237402 Floor Liners X
52268329 2 84073612 Floor Liners X X
52270748 1 22958431 Splash Guards
52270748 2 23278169 Splash Guards
52270755 1 22958431 Splash Guards
52270755 2 23278169 Splash Guards
52271238 1 22894857 Splash Guards X X
52271238 2 23387353 Splash Guards X

52276033 1 23381376 Floor Liners X
52276033 2 84370635 Floor Liners X X

If YES, then assuming TRANSID is in column A and so on, try this in column F . . .

=COUNTIFS(A\$2:A\$13,A2,E\$2:E\$13,"X")

Remember, older versions of Excel don't have the COUNTIFS function.
