HELP!!! Can't get forumla figured out!


This is my first posting to this forum, and I haven't been able to
search using the right criteria (not even sure what I would search
under) to find what I need so I thought I would post a thread with the

I have an access query that gives me the results in a spreadsheet
layout, with 2 worksheets on it.

I need to create a forumla that will look at the data on the 2nd sheet
and compare the values in 2 particular columns with the value in one
cell on the 1st sheet and populate a different cell on the 1st sheet
with a count of entries from the 2nd sheet.

If Sheet B, Column 1 (2:897 data range) AND Sheet B Column 2 (also
2:897 data range) = Sheet A Cell D, count those entries on Sheet B
Column 2 (2:897 data range) equal to the data in Sheet A Cell E, and
populate Sheet A Cell F with the number.

Is such a forumla possible?

Please help me ASAP, as I'm ok with the simpler formulas, but these
tougher ones are beyond my ability without some help.

I need to know so that I can get my boss off my case by either getting
the formula figured out or by telling him that its not possible.

Thanks for any and all help in advance.

It sounds like you're looking for a combination of SUMIF and VLOOKUP

how do I combine these two functions?

It sounds like you have criteria:

SheetB!A2:A897 = value in D
SheetB!B2:B897 = value in D
SheetB!B2:B897 = value in E (same as above?)

If that's the criteria, value in D must equal value in E in order to
count.  Can you explain more?

If I understand you correctly, then in cell F1 on SheetA
=SUMPRODUCT(--(SheetB!$A$2:$A$897=D1),--(SheetB!$B$2:$B$897=D1)) + 

If this isn't correct, post back with more details

I appreciate all your help, but after further investigation on my par
as to just what my supervisor is asking to be done, I'll have to do i
in Access, which I can do just fine.  The current Access generate
results do not give enough information to do what I had in mind wit
Excel.  The query only returns ~900 rows, and the summary of the repor
I'm trying to automate has to account for >40,000 lines.

I need to do some serious query modification from the way the origina
author wrote it.

But thanks anyway.  I do appreciate the input.  I'm sure I'll b
posting again at some point in the near future.  I'm glad to have foun
such a valuable resource for this type of experience and knowledge.

Thanks everyone!!

I'm back again...this stupid thing is still not working right...

what I need is this:


Sheet B range A2:A897 = Sheet A cell A9
Sheet B range E2:E897 = Sheet A cell C8


Count the text values in Sheet B range A2:A897 that satisfy thes

OTHERWISE, display "0"

Any suggestions?

I've been playing with the basics, SUMIF, SUM, IF, COUNTIF and haven'
been able to get a working formula.

I really need to get an Excel 2003 for Dummies book through
suggestions on a particular book as well?

I don't want to "beat a dead horse" but to make sure everyone is on th
same page...

For each row on Sheet B (2:897) I need to have it look at the values i
columns B and E, and compare them with the values on Sheet A (Cell A
for Sheet B column B, and Cell C8 for Sheet B column E).

If all is equal or true, then I need to count the number of cells i
Sheet B column B that equal the data in Sheet A cell A9.

I don't know how else to describe it clearly...other than i
person...I'm trying to give as much info as I can...I apologize i
anyone is offended by my "lowly" description (i.e. trying to explain i
to a non-Excel user) but I have found that sometimes breaking it down t
the absolute basics makes sure we all understand on the master level o
what is trying to be accomplished.

Thanks again!

Hey need your help!! We have 2 domains, 1 2000 and 1 4.0 domain. We have 2 2000 exchange servers running in the 2000 domain and 1 exchange 5.5 box running in the 4.0 domain. We have ADC running.

Help with memory leak (possibly in CArray)
