It sounds like you are simply trying to add the columns from a set number of rows. If that's the case, the formula is.


 

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

=SUM(F4:F53)

Expert:  John D replied 2 years ago.

Hi,

 

I think I understand what you are trying to do

 

Your formula is basically correct but you need to separate the two arguments by a comma.

 

Here is the corrected formula

 

=SUMIF(F4:F53 , "DS")

 

Hope this is ok. Let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for clicking Accept if you are satisfied with the solution

First Answer not what I'm looking for. Second Answer yes what I'm looking for =SUMIF(F4:F53, "DS") No this still doesn't seem to be working. Have tried it several times any suggestions on what could be wrong?

Which corresoinsing column do you want to sum when column F has "DS", or do you just want to count the number of DS's in column F

Count the Number of DS's please. I wish to do the same for the RR's & V
