The-PC-Guy :

Thanks for using JustAnswer. My name isXXXXX will do whatever I can to answer your question

The-PC-Guy :

what are you looking to do with a formula?

Customer:

Hi Andrew. Thanks for responding so quickly.

The-PC-Guy :

sure

Customer:

We rent out properties in France and would like to set up a formula to track the numbers of guests from each country.

Customer:

I have been trying to do this with a COUNTIF formula.

Customer:

So for example, =COUNTIF(H3:H54,"American")

Customer:

This works okay but does not help with numbers

Customer:

So, I have the nationality in row H and in row G a number

The-PC-Guy :

are you trying to count where the specific text occurs

The-PC-Guy :

can you provide a sample sheet

Customer:

Sure

The-PC-Guy :

if you click the paperclip icon at the top of the chat

The-PC-Guy :

it says image

The-PC-Guy :

but you can post an excel file the same way

The-PC-Guy :

after clicking paperclip

Customer:

The-PC-Guy :

Customer:

Yes.

The-PC-Guy :

Customer:

The-PC-Guy :

The-PC-Guy :

what values x what values
