Count will only work with numbers. So select another box where you want your number and use this formula: =count(x:x) This should give the count number then you will need to find the difference. In another box, use =sum(x-x). This should give you your difference.

If this helps you, please rate me. Thanks, Patty

### Count the number of open and closed order status per owner

My suggestion is to use a Pivot Table.  Follow these instructions:
Click on column A1 - then in the menu bar click DATA > Pivot Table and Pivot Chart Report.

Click NEXT on step 1 of pivot table wizard.
For step two you will want to highlight all of the data on your sheet.  then click next.
Choose NEW WORKSHEET for step 3 of the pivot table wizard and click finish.
Once the Pivot Table sheet opens, drag the STATUS field into the top left corner of the pivot table view, where "drop column fields" and "drop row fields" meet.  Next drop another instance of the STATUS field into the "drop row fields here" column.  And lastly drop the OWNER field into the "drop column fields here" section.  You should now be viewing a report showing you exactly what you were looking for.

Hi, Pivot tables are quite complex but basically you have a table of data which you sort based on different fields from your table.

### Data for excel chart

You need to create subtotals so that it looks like something like this:

Prod/units Amt. Level Total

xxxx 10.00 1
yyyy 20.00 1
30.00

dddd 40.00 2
ffff 30.00 2
70.00

etc.

To do this I would suggest using the Pivot Table feature of Excel. It is not too hard to use but you do have to know what you want and also have to be sure you are getting results as expected. Like any tool, it has to be used right. You can also use sub-total functions supplied in VBA as well in your cells.

If you want to avoid using VBA functions in cell and deal with ranges, etc., use the Pivot Table Wizard.
