COUNTIF(range,criteria)
Counts the number of cells within a range that meet the given condition.
This COUNTIF formula appears to count only the Employees that have the value "F" in the designated container. ie. Female.

Here, paste this formula in D1 then copy it down to the last row:
=SUM(IF(\$A\$1:\$A\$30=A1,IF(\$C\$1:\$C\$30="Yes",1,0)))

I am not sure but I was looking at this problem and I thought the equation should be reversed as I put it below. This gives a percetage of the entrys that are of the value 1 as it seems you are looking for.
=COUNTIF(A3:A74,"1")/COUNT(A3:A74)*100

SOURCE: Countifs

The formula in both versions is the same:

=countif(range,value)

i.e. The below formula will increase its count by one if any of the 18 cells it's checking are equal to 1.
=countif(A1:B9,1)

SOURCE: Cannot get COUNTIF to work!

The only thing I see wrong in your formula is a missing colon.

COUNTIF(\$C\$2:\$C\$999,C2)=1

SOURCE: copy formulas

It should work if you just copy and paste it. Or select the range of your working area and right click in destination cell and choose paste special. When new window pop up, just choose Formula.

It should work usually, but by any chance you've encountered the problem regarding this. Just let me know...i'll try to help you...

P.S.: If this information was helpful, please rate this solution.

### Countif formulas

Are you trying to find how many don't have a letter? If so you might try "COUNTA" instead of "COUNTIF". You could also try looking at the format of the cell your formula is in and change it to general or number.

### HOW TO COUNT THE OCCURRENCES OF A TEXT STRING

In the cell that you want the result to appear in, enter the appropriate formula from the following examples.
How to Count the Occurrences of a Number
Use this formula
=SUM(IF(range=number,1,0))
where range is the range that you want to search, and number is the number that you want to count.
NOTE: This formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.
How to Count the Occurrences of a Text String
Method 1
Use this formula
=SUM(IF(range="text",1,0))
where range is the range that you want to search, and text is the text that you want to find (the text must be enclosed in quotation marks).
NOTE: The above formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.
Method 2
Use the COUNTIF() function to count the occurrences of a text string. For example, use the formula
=COUNTIF(range,"text")
where range is the range of cells that you are evaluating, and text is the text string that you want to count instances of (note that text must be enclosed in quotation marks).
NOTE: This formula must be entered as an array formula. To enter an array formula, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.
Wildcard characters can be used within the COUNTIF function.
The asterisk character (*) represents more than one character. For example, to count all the cells in the range a1:a10 that contain an "x," you can use the following formula:
=COUNTIF(a1:a10,"*x*")
The question mark character (?) can also be used to represent one wildcard character -- for example, to count all cells in the range whose second character is the letter, such as "ax" or "bx."
=COUNTIF(a1:a10,"?x*")

### Sum of the greatest run of negitive numbers

Hi, Not sure if this is what you have tried:
1: Assuming each run is on a different column
Run1 Run2 Run3 Run4, etc...and the maxium lenght of each column is 9 values, but each colum has a different lenght of numbers..
Then you can use:
=MAX(COUNTIF(A2:A10,"<>0"),COUNTIF(B2:B10,"<>0"), {keep adding countif for each colum).

If all runs are on the same colum, then using Pivot tables is easier. If you have a copy of your data, please post it so that I can give you the exact formula ;)

### Excel formula

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")

### Formulas

You may want COUNTIF if you're specifying criteria. For instance, if my prices are found in b3 to b7, here's a formula that will find all those that are less than 6 (\$6.00):

=COUNTIF(B3:B7, "<6")

If you're using multiple criteria, such as you want to find all the prices that are greater than \$5 and less than \$8, the following will accomplish it. (The ABS gives you the absolute value of the result, in case the smaller number is first.)

=ABS(SUM(COUNTIF(B3:B7, ">5") - COUNTIF(B3:B7, "<8")))
