Formula Help Please
Trying to get a value for columns with Yes. Not total but countif(or(col 1 "yes, col 2 yes etc.
I've tried every variation of this: =IF(OR(COUNTIF([O2 under 5 lpm]1, "yes", ([O2 over 5 lpm]1, "yes"))
Comments

Try
=Countif([O2 under 5 lpm]1, "yes") + Countif([O2 over 5 lpm]1, "yes")
That will count all yesses in the first column and then add the count of all yesses in the 2nd column.

but i don't want a total for both columns, just a single value if either column has yes. the OR statements are not working. and i even copied a working if(or from another sheet.

Still not 100% clear on what you're after, so I've given 2 options.
This will give you a total count for both columns if either contains a "Yes":
=COUNTIF([O2 under 5 lpm]:[O2 over 5 lpm], "Yes")  COUNTIFS([O2 under 5 lpm]:[O2 under 5 lpm], "Yes", [O2 over 5 lpm]:[O2 over 5 lpm], "Yes")
This will give you a value of 1 for each row (i.e. in a cell either side of your values) where a "Yes" occurs:
=IF(OR([O2 under 5 lpm]1 = "Yes", [O2 over 5 lpm]1 = "Yes"), 1, "")
Kind regards,

Can you post a screenshot showing what data you are working with so we can better understand what you are trying to do?

Yep, I'm with Mike here. Still not clear on what you're after. A screenshot would be ideal.
