## Summary Not Empty Cells with COUNTIFS

Assuming you have a dataset in range A1:C6, and you want to create a formula which can count non-blank cells in column C. Non blank means something has not been enter. And you want column A to be equals a particular item(“excel”) and column B equals to a particular value(“2016”). You may need a specific formula, which will count the number of results for a particular data range on a particular cell. The following formula can be used to build a summary count of non-blank values:

=COUNTIFS(\$A\$1:\$A\$6,”excel”,\$B\$1:\$B\$6,”jan”,\$C\$1:\$C\$6,”<>”) As you want a particular value in range A1:A6, and a product value as “excel” is the first criteria. And you also have another date value. And you can notice that there are three conditions. Now what’s great about count is it can count with one or more condition. You just need to put the criteria range, then criteria, and next criteria.

Now for criteria range one and you should have a question in column A. and you need to ask of every cell value in this column , if those cell values are equals to “excel”.
