    i need to Count how many cells in col(O) display a "Y" between dates in col(C)

    at the moment i use countif but this just counts all the "Y"'s

    Excel 2007

    each row displays many columns of data

    the counting takes place on another sheet in the book as the data sheet cant be edited

    each job entry is not necessarily in the correct date order as they are listed per job number col(A)

    so i would like a formula to look at each date, access whether it falls between the given dates, and report back how many entries within the dates is marked with a "Y"

    Hi, since I have absolutely no idea of what you have my suggestion may not work but maybe you could add an extra column that, based on a formula that checks a specifi dat that could be entered in let's zay Z1 puts a 1 in all cells in a column next to column C where the date should be counted for and then count all "Y' where that column = 1 ?

    No version of Excel, no idea of the further lay-out, so it's just a blind suggestion... hope you can do something with it.

    Another suggestion

    The Y & N are in Column O
    the dates are in Column C

    so we need to know the dates you want to use between - in this forumla ,i'm using Cells H10 and I10 to show the dates between

    and use this formula K10
