CountIF, DCount or DcountA, please help?

How are you? Hope you are fine & will receive this message at your best.

I have a problem & I need your help.
I have created a work sheet in MS excel where I have entered all our transactions during the last year processing by our different sales representatives in different cities of country.
Column D contains CITY which may b like Lahore, Karachi or Islamabad where they have sold the items, & column I contains sales representative name like Ali, Asad, Waqas etc who have sold the items.
I need to do a count of all the transations where the city is "Islamabad" AND the Sales representative is "Ali"

Please help


You have these options:

1- If you are in Excel2007, you can use COUNTIFS, which will count based on more than one condition (up to 30)
2- If you have Excel2003, you can do DCOUNTA, since the cells are having strings
3- You can also do DCOUNTA in Excel2007.
4- You can add a column having the criteria you want using simple IF, then count that column, something like this
=IF(AND( A1=T1, B1=U1),1,0)
A1 has the city name and the list goes down to whatever
B1 has the sales man and it goes down also
T1 has the city you want to search for
U1 has the sales man you want to search for
Then do a SUM for that column to have the count
5- You still have another option, which is PivotTable, but I don't recommend using that powerful tool for something simple like this

let me know

An Excel search question?

I am trying to make an excel worksheet simply count the number of each persons names in a, say 10x10 grid randomly filled with names. Can it be done? And how!? I just want a list underneath of, for example "John - 10; Dave - 3; Kim - 28" depending on how many boxes each person's name appears in. I have tried DCOUNT but probably incorrectly, as it brought back totally random figures that dont make sense. Please help!!


You will need COUNTIF
it goes like this
=COUNTIF( A1:F10, "*John*")
I recommand using * to allow finding the cell with John, and cell with John - 10
