# Can you combine the criteria of formulas?

Options
✭✭

Hi, I'm looking to input a formula to a sheet which will count the number of "Open" residual risks that are also recognised as 16 and above.

I already have a column for the number of Residual Risks scored 16 and above and a separate column counting the total number of open risks on the entire sheet.

Is there a way to make it count only the "open" number of risks scored 16 and above, currently it is counting residual risks 16 and above but both open and closed.

You should be able to use COUNTIFS for this:

= COUNTIFS ([RISK Residual Score]:[RISK Residual Score],>16,[Risk Open or Closed?]:[Risk Open or Closed?],"Open")

This is the sheet were trying to add the formula to!

So the selected cell is the one we want to count the number of residual risks scored 16 and above that are 'Open'. This should equal 1 once the formula is put in but can't figure out the formula to count the Open risk that are also 16 or above.

Had to adjust slightly so it was 16 and above but it worked perfectly. Thank you for your help.
