Hello all. I having been given a spreadsheet that I have been told I can make minimal changes to and i need to get this formula to work if possible? If i cant would i just have to add a new column with the year in?

Which isnt working :/

I have Three Columns with data in, and I only want it to count if if all 3 terms are met. Terms being "2014" in column D, "Jan" in column E and "Y" in column AT.

I apolagise for the bad spelling and gramma.

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

I think you need consistent row ranges, so either 1 to 1000 or 1 to 5000, but not a mixture of both. If that doesn't work, does this: =SUMPRODUCT(('TASK DETAILS'!D1:D5000="2014")*('TASK DETAILS'!E1:E5000="Jan")*('TASK DETAILS'!AT1:AT5000="Y"))

Welcome to the board.

All ranges need to be the same size.

If you are using excel 2007 or later, you could just use COUNTIFS: =COUNTIFS('TASK DETAILS'!D1:D5000,2014,'TASK DETAILS'!E1:E5000,"Jan",'TASK DETAILS'!AT1:AT5000,"Y")
