# THREED Help

#### Aaron

##### Board Regular
I have looked over the threads that have the THREED function referenced, and I am really lost. I have 10 sheets that are all the same, and I want to use the THREED formula. This is what I have, and if anyone can help my ignorance I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Sheet 1 is a summary sheet.
All Sheets that follow are labeled alphabetically, and cell contents in column A are identical. Column B the user was given the choice to make out of 5 references. I am wanting to sum on the Summary sheet particular choices. I tried to use the following formula in Sheet1!B4 to no avail

=sumproduct(--(threed(a:d!b7)="4=Very Well Aligned"),threed(a:d!b7))

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

Did you really name your sheets A, B, C, and D?

It seems to me that you want to count the occurence of "4=Very Well Aligned". Right?

Aladin you are exactly right. Should I name my sheets differently?

No, not necessarily. Since you want a 3d, single condition counting:

Insert 2 new sheets, name them First and Last, put A to D in between these two, and use:

=COUNTIF.3D(First:Last!\$B\$7,"4=Very Well Aligned")

A function provided by the morefunc.xll add-in that allows you to contruct 3d formulas. I think I posted a few such formulas on this site you can examine.

Cheers Aladin. Though it was a standard xl function I'd missed - should have though of morefunc when you posted!

Aladin =countif.3d works like a charm. Thanks for your help.

How would I have know to use 3d instead of threed?

Also, why are the First and Last sheets so important.
