1. ## ISERR with COUNTIFS

Hi All

I have:

=SUMPRODUCT(--ISERROR(Dates!F6:F7000)
&
=COUNTIF(Dates!F6:F7000,"Car"
Can they be combined in one countifs expression at all?

Many thanks

2. ## Re: ISERR with COUNTIFS

What is it that you are actually trying to do?
Count the "Car" entries"
Exatly what kind of errors do you have in this list?
Do you know what is causing them (formulas, etc)?

3. ## Re: ISERR with COUNTIFS

Hi Joe4,
I am looking to count the number of #VALUE errors in Column F, that have "Car" in Column C. The errors are expected because a date hasn't been inputted in another sheet, and I want to count the number of missing dates.

4. ## Re: ISERR with COUNTIFS

Can you update your formulas in column F to account for the error, and return something else instead, like ""?
That would be easier to work with than errors.

5. ## Re: ISERR with COUNTIFS

Try
=SUMPRODUCT(--ISERROR(Dates!F6:F7000),--(Dates!C6:C7000="Car" ))

6. ## Re: ISERR with COUNTIFS

=SUMPRODUCT(--ISERROR(Dates!F6:F7000),--(Dates!C6:C7000="Car" ))
That should work.

I guess it is just my own personal preference that I really do not like errors showing up on my report (makes people question the validity of the report/data).
So I would probably use an IFERROR formula in Dates!F6:F7000 to return a blank instead of an error, i.e.
Code:
`=IFERROR(current formula,"")`
Then, the SUMRPODUCT would look like:
Code:
`=SUMPRODUCT(--(Dates!F6:F7000=""),--(Dates!C6:C7000="Car" ))`
