Here's how I'd do it, Vicki: Create a helper column, say in N, "=AND(A2>=DATE(2010,1,1),A2<=DATE(2010,1,8))". Then use =COUNTIF(N:N,TRUE) and it'll count how many rows have dates in that range.

Hi Bob. Basically I have named the date range as "Date" and the name range as "Names". I have used another sheet for my formulas and have 2010/01/01 in cell B2 and 2010/01/08 in cell B3 (which I had to use for sumproducts). I tried your formula but it comes back as FALSE? Surely if I can sumproduct between dates there must be a way to countproduct? I don't need to eliminate any duplicates. I am a new excel learner. Your assistance is much appreciated. Thanks, Vicki "Bob Bridges" wrote: > Here's how I'd do it, Vicki: Create a helper column, say in N, > "=AND(A2>=DATE(2010,1,1),A2<=DATE(2010,1,8))".

That suggests that you've got the #N/A error in at least one of the cells which are feeding into the formula. Mike did, of course, mean "Where J7 and K7 are you first and last dates", rather than J1 and K1 (or he meant to change the J7 and K7 references in the formula to J1 and K1), but that would not give an #N/A error so you need to look at your input data values. -- David Biddulph "Vicki Leibowitz" <VickiLeibowitz@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote in message news:8E51E044-4DEB-4BF4-9FFE-975A81A64869@microsoft.com... > Hi, > I've tried everything. =SUMPRODUCT((A1:A30>=J7)*(A1:A30<=K7)*(B1:B30<>"")) > gives me #NA. > Am I just being a complete idiot?

Thanks for spotting my error David. Vixter, The formula =SUMPRODUCT((Date>=B2)*(Date<=B3)) will corectly count dates in a range but based upon the original post it doesn't answer the question. >I have dates in column A and names in column B. What if column B has blanks in? -- Mike When competing hypotheses are otherwise equal, adopt the hypothesis that introduces the fewest assumptions while still sufficiently answering the question.

hi I would like a formula that will allow a user to input a figure (hours and minutes) into a cell that will calculate the end date and time based on a start date and time. For example, Enter 30 hours, static start time is 01/01/04 00:00hrs, the formula would then calculate that the end figure is 02/01/04 06:00hrs. Essentially it is calculating the number of hours & mins added onto the start date with the end result a date and time later than the hours & mins entered Hope this makes sense!

How can I append or up-date my formula to include these new cells with out have to type the new cells into the formula? When I make the cell that has the formula in it active/edit, all of the cells that are referenced in the formula have a highlight around them. Is there a key or key combination I can press while clicking on the cells I want to add to the formula? Thanks, john Hi see your post in Excel.misc -- Regards Frank ...
