#### Count Vaules in a range that appear in another range

```I have three ranges e.g.

Range 1      Range 2     Range 3
Bread         Apples        Bread
Apples        Oranges     Buns
Oranges      Pears
Buns
Bread
Pears
Apples

I'm trying to construct a formula that counts the number of times, say, and
entry in Range 3 appears in Range 1  - In this instance the answer would be 3.

```Thanks, but is there a way to do this without enumerating everything in range
3. It's basically a lookup list that changes over time. I only want to change
the list, not everything that references it...

```Hi,

I assume your range to be counted is in column B

=SUMPRODUCT(COUNTIF(A1:A100,B1:B100))

Embedding an application within another application
I want to be able to start an application from my VC++ application & have the application dock its window inside my VC++ application. How can this be done?

How to count the number of non blank cells in a filtered list
There must be a way of doing this, but I cannot see it. I have a spreadsheet with items to be progressed. This list can be filtered on a number of criteria. The filter currently only works on the first 1000 rows. It is not considered likely that it will ever go above this. When I filter, Excel tells me there are "x of y records found" where x is all the filtered items plus any blank rows left until row 999; and y is the number of records in total (minus any header rows).

Outlook Express Message count
Sorry for the double post. Background: By design (I think), Outlook Express 6 shows a count of unread messages on the left navigator, next to each folder name. The folders do not show the count of total or read messages next to the folder name. Thus, if all messages in a folder have been read, there won't be a numerical display next to the folder name at all. Now, if a user wants to see more message count information, and VIEW -> LAYOUT -> BASIC -> "Status Bar" is checked, the status bar at the bottom of Outlook Express window will appear, and display the total messag...

Multisheet range in SUMPRODUCT?
