#### Counting Two Characteristics from Two different Columns

```I have a spreadsheet that lists Account Rep names in Column "A", Client Names
in Column "B" and client status in Column "C" (i.e. active or inactive)

Bob | Medco | Active
Tim | Johnson | Inactive
Tim | P-Products| Active
Jill | Kaystar | Active
Tim | Gemni | Active
Bob | Transcorp | Inactive

At the top of the Spreadsheet I want to tally the information to indicate that
Tim has three clients, 2 Active Client and 1 Inactive client

I believe I have done this before, but cannot for the life of me remember
what I did - I have tried to do a SUMPRODUCT but keep getting a zero result
so something is amiss in my formula.

Help would be much appreciated.
```

```I will assume the first rep "Bob" is in A10,the last in A100
For Tim, total clients:    =COUNTIF(A10:A100,"Tim"
Or is A2 hold the value Time then =COUNTIF(A10:A100, A2)
Tim/Inactive
Again with Tim in A2: =SUMPRODUCT((A10:A100=A2),(C10:C100="Inactive")
or if you have Excel2007: COUNTIFS(A10:A100,A2,C10:C100,"Inactive)  -- note
the S on COUNTIFS

When you have this working, have a look at Pivot tables

```I would be inclined to use a pivot table for this... Highlight the data that
you want to summarize including the headings. Select data -> Pivot Table... |
You can just select Finish.

Drag the Account Rep field to the left column. Drag the Active / Inactive
Field next to the Account Rep in the left column. Now drage Active / Inactive
into the data area. That should do it... You can select an auto format to
make it look fancy. Alternativley the Active / Inactive could be dragged to
the upper row.

```To count Tim's clients use countif(A:A,"Tim") to count Tim's Active clinets
do countifs(A:A,Tim,C:C,"Active")
I think those are the fomulaic solutions to your problems assuming your
version of office supports countifs.
