Column B contains Units (DPO,ECU,AN-2) column C contains Program Names (RCM, RBM). I want to count number of times a Unit has Program.

Result example DPO has 2 RCM, 3 RBM

Can you do this using a pivot table where columns B & C are Row Fields and Count of B&C is data fields.

Conditional formating should be able to this. But how is your data organized? (Column headers, Row headers etc.)

COUNTIF counts items that meet criteria. The SUMIF will "add" the amounts. I believe you want to use the COUNTIF() function.

Use 3 pivot tables, put a, b, and c in the row areas and "Count of a", "Count of b" and "Count of c" in the data sections. That will give you a count of each date for each column

Use the COUNTIF command. The COUNTIF command can count the criteria for a range of cells. Since you can only use it for one range of cells or criteria, you simply add another criteria to the formula as follows: =COUNTIF(AG1:AG5,"X")+COUNTIF(Sheet2!L1:L6,"X")

create a dummy column (columnC) containing columnA&columnB

use countif at columnD to count the number of observations per combination of columnA and columnB (in particular those with blank entries in columnB).

The solution I've used in similar situations is to create a 3rd column C with the items in column A and column B concatenated.

C2 = A2 & B2

C3 = A3 & B3

C4 = A4 & B4

etc.

Then use COUNTIF function: =COUNTIF(C:C,"FredRed Ball")

Hope this helps.

The expected result in column D would be the number of times a Unit came up with a certain Program. If we look down columns B & C I want to know how many times, as an example, does DPO show in column B, while RCM shows in column C on the same row.

can you explain a little more?
