# Possibly COUNTIF? Maybe something else

I have a table with loads of columns. they all have a unique ID (A). In one column (K) it says a date that something was meant to be completed, in the next column (L) it says when it was actually completed. I am trying to do an analysis and show how many of the Projects (A) where delivered on time.

### Excel Facts

Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().

Welcome to the MrExcel board!

MrExcel has a tool called “XL2BB” that lets you post samples of your data that will allow us to copy/paste it to our Excel spreadsheets, so we can work with the same copy of data that you are. Instructions on using this tool can be found here: XL2BB Add-in Make sure any sensitive data is removed or disguised.

Note that there is also a “Test Here” forum on this board. This is a place where you can test using this tool (or any other posting techniques that you want to test) before trying to use those tools in your actual posts.

You could insert a column with a formula such as: =DAYS(L2,K2)
copy the formula down through each applicable row.
Then wherever you want your analysis, do a simple countif to show how many projects went over schedule: =COUNTIF(N2:N11,">0")

Maybe something like this:

@AhoyNC
Those formulas will incorrectly return 1 if there are no rows on time or early.

Alternative suggestion that addresses the above issue:
If it is possible that the Comp date column can be empty then the On time/Early formula would need to be the row 14 formula, not row 13.
