    I need to count the number of cells using multiple criterias. the main problem is that in one column in some cells there are names of subsectors (like real estate, property, housing) that i want to count as one sector (real estate). in this case i want to somehow apply an or condition because some cells include more than 1 subsector name hence counting the same cell twice. at the moment i am trying the =SUM(COUNTIFS($U$82:$U$86,">"&1,$Q$82:$Q$86,{"*real*","*house*"})) formula
    thanks
