# COUNTIFS equivalent in Excel 2003 - both criteria have text, one has "wildcard"

Hi all,

I am trying to find a way to write the following formula in Excel 2003. I
have tried SUMPRODUCT but it does not seem to work when both criteria have
text values. I tried COUNTIF & COUNTIF but I think the wildcard * is
throwing off the result.

=COUNTIFS('Cycle 1'!\$B\$14:\$B\$1069, "Auto*", 'Cycle 1'!\$J\$14:\$J\$1069, "100%")

Thank you!

COUNTIFS('Cycle 1'!\$B\$14:\$B\$1069, "Auto*", 'Cycle 1'!\$J\$14:\$J\$1069, "100%")

Does the range J14:J1069 contain numbers formatted as Percentage?

See if this does what you want...

=SUMPRODUCT(--(LEFT('Cycle 1'!\$B\$14:\$B\$1069,4)="Auto"),--('Cycle
1'!\$J\$14:\$J\$1069=1))

Hi thanks for your quick response. I'm getting a "#DIV/0" error. Soemthing
must be wrong because when I use COUNTIFS in 2007, the result is 26. Any
ideas of what could be causing this error or what could fix the formula?

I'm getting a "#DIV/0" error.

Do you have #DIV/0! errors in any of the referenced ranges?

Try this array formula** :

=SUM(IF(LEFT('Cycle 1'!B14:B1069,4)="Auto",IF(ISNUMBER('Cycle
1'!J14:J1069),IF('Cycle 1'!J14:J1069=1,1))))

** array formulas need to be entered using the key combination of
CTRL,SHIFT,ENTER (not just ENTER). Hold down both the CTRL key and the SHIFT
key then hit ENTER.
