Sumproduct Isnumber Search is returning same result for different values

Hello - I utilizing a formula that is intended to count the number of visible entries in a table that meets multiple criteria utilizing Sumproduct, Isnumber, and Search. However; I have just realized that in some instances the formula is including results it should not.

For example, in the below forumla, to be counted, the row needs to contain "X" in column (E), contain "F" in column (K), and contain "2" in column (H) - the formula should also only be counting visible results. However, it looks like if column (H) has the number "12" it is counting it. Similarly if I adjust the formula to search for "7" in column (H), it will count those that have "17".

How can I adjust the formula to count only exact matches for "2" or "7" in column (H)?

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

If there are spaces on either side of the 2 (or 7) change your search to:

SEARCH(" 2 ",...)
