# SUMPRODUCT excluding blank cells

I'm trying to count how many agents hit goal in a particular quarter.
I've set up the following formula to see if the number in column B is greater than that in column H, subtracting if LOA is entered.
My problem is it's counting blank spaces, totally throwing off my calculations, and I can't seem to get it to stop!

=(SUMPRODUCT(--(B3:B15>=H3:H15))+SUMPRODUCT(--(B17:B29>=H17:H29)) +SUMPRODUCT(--(B31:B43>=H31:H43)))-SUMPRODUCT(--(B3:B43="LOA"))-SUMPRODUCT(--(B3:B43="Pending"))

HELP!!

thank you, mmac

Try this

=(SUMPRODUCT(--((B3:B15<>"")*(B3:B15>=H3:H15)))+SUMPRODUCT(--((B17:B29<>"")*(B17:B29>=H17:H29))) +SUMPRODUCT(--((B31:B43<>"")*(B31:B43>=H31:H43))))-SUMPRODUCT(--(B3:B43="LOA"))-SUMPRODUCT(--(B3:B43="Pending"))

Unfortunately that came back with the value "-319". I added spaces between the " " and came back with the value 1202.
The answer for the particular set I'm working with should be 5.

Any ideas what's going on??

You could copy the excel data with which you are testing and paste it here, to review them.
