# Collecting/Counting Data from Multiple Cells/Columns

Good morning,

I'm using a formula to capture the total amount of "Extremely Satisfied", "Very Satisfied", and "Satisfied" in the "Satisfaction with level of technical knowledge" column for each quarter.

=COUNTIFS({Satisfaction with level of technical knowledge}, "Extremely Satisfied", {CY & Q}, "2024-Q1")

What I'm trying to do is capture all of the "Extremely Satisfied", "Very Satisfied", and "Satisfied" across all three columns for each quarter.

Ie. 2024-Q1 has two "Extremely Satisfied"

2023-Q4 has three "Very Satisfied"

Below is how our data is captured - these totals are only pulling from the "Satisfaction with level of technical knowledge", but I need the totals for all three columns

Can you help?

Thank you!

You would do it as three separate COUNTIFS added together.

You can make things easier for writing the formulas by having the Quarter/Year be formatted the same in both sheets. This would remove the need to change it so you would end up with a formula like this which you could then make a column formula:

=COUNTIFS({Satisfaction with level of technical knowledge}, "Extremely Satisfied", {CY & Q}, [Quarter / Year]@row)+COUNTIFS({Satisfaction with customer service received}, "Extremely Satisfied", {CY & Q}, [Quarter / Year]@row)+COUNTIFS({Satisfaction with dynamic systems}, "Extremely Satisfied", {CY & Q}, [Quarter / Year]@row)

Hope this helps, but if I've misunderstood anything or you still have problems/questions then let us know!
