# COUNTIFS and SUMIFS functions?

Options
✭✭✭

I created a sheet that is a roll up of various information derived from a master sheet. I am using this to create a dashboard. However, I am stuck on a few formulas. I tried SUMIFS and COUNTIFS, but I cant get it right and either get invalid ref or unparseable.

1. I would like to be able to count the number of stars appear for an individual (CA column).
2. I would like to sum the dollar value for each person, that had a star (column not shown, but its contract values)

Here are the formulas that you can try

1. Count of starts for an individual =COUNTIFS(Priority:Priroty, 1, CA:CA, "Full name as it appears in the cell")
2. Sum of contract value for an individual =SUMIFS([Contract value column]:[Contract value column], Priority:Priroty, 1, CA:CA, "Full name as it appears in the cell")

Thank you soooo much. In the logic, when you place a 1, what does that actually mean, true?

Also, if I use COUNTIFS and I want the formula to count the number of cells that are either blank or are greater than today's date, do I incorporate an OR function?

1 Yes, 1 means true.

2 Yes, but you use COUNTIF.

=COUNTIF(Date:Date, OR(ISBLANK(@cell), @cell > TODAY()))
