Remarks 
* This function replaces the COUNTIF function. * For an illustrated example refer to the page under Advanced Functions. * This function includes hidden rows. * This function supports wildcards (? and *). * Wildcard character: ? = a single character. * Wildcard character: * = multiple characters. * This function uses the actual cell values and not the displayed formatted values. * The "criteria" can contain wildcard characters. * To include the actual wildcard characters prefix them with a tilde (~?) and (~*). * Every additional range must have the same number of rows and columns as "criteria_range1". * Any empty cells are considered equivalent to a 0 value. * You can use the COUNT function to return the number of non blank cells with no conditions. * You can use the COUNTA function to include logical values and text. * You can use the COUNTIFSVISIBLE  User Defined Function if you want to exclude hidden rows. * This is similar to the AVERAGEIFS function. * This is similar to the MAXIFS function. * This is similar to the MINIFS function. * This is similar to the SUMIFS function. * For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.office.com 

1  What is the number of cells that have "Barry" in the range "B1:B5". 2  What is the number of cells that have "Barry" in the range "B1:B5". Notice that prefixing the condition with an equal sign means the same thing. 3  What is the number of cells that have "Simon" in the range "B1:B5". 4  What is the number of cells that have "Barry" in the range "B1:B5" and have a value not equal to 20 in the range "C1:C5". 5  What is the number of cells that have "Barry" in the range "B1:B5" and have a value equal to 20 in the range "C1:C5". 6  What is the number of cells that have "Barry" in the range "B1:B5" and have a value greater than the value in cell "C3" in the range "C1:C5".
