#### Any suggestions about the "countif" function?

```The COUNTIF function uses a number for setting the condition, for example
=COUNTIF(A1:A100,"<10"). How is it possible to replace the condition (in
this case "<10") with a cell address?
Thank you very much.

```If the condition is in cell D1, then try this:

=COUNTIF(A1:A100,"<"&D1)

Hope this helps.

I have lots of spreadsheets containing temperature data, and being able
to point 'countif' to a single cell will make it a lot easier to count
occurrences of temperatures within a given range, than caving to alter

Conditional Formatting & CountIf problem
Hi, I've been trying to solve this problem for quite some time now but I can't get a straight answer. I need to create a macro which will match numbers from two lists and highlight the numbers on the master list when the macro is ran. It should look work something like this: conditional format: formula is=CountIf(\$A\$5:\$A\$4500 'from all grouped sheets',A5) =1 I don't know how I would program this into a VBA macro. The main idea is A5:A4500 from all grouped sheets is compared to a5:a4500 on the master sheet. Also, not all cells would be filled so I would need to omit...
