How To Use The CountIf Function In Excel

To use the COUNTIF function in Excel, follow these steps:

  1. Select the cell where you want the result to appear.

  2. Type "=COUNTIF(" into the cell.

  3. Select the range of cells that you want to count. For example, if you want to count the number of cells that contain the value "Yes" in cells A1 through A10, select the range A1:A10.

  4. Type a comma "," after the range.

  5. Enter the criteria for the cells that you want to count. For example, if you want to count the number of cells that contain the value "Yes", enter "Yes" in quotes. If you want to count the number of cells that are greater than a certain value, enter the value without quotes, followed by the appropriate comparison operator (>, <, >=, or <=).

  6. Type ")" to close the function.

For example, to count the number of cells in the range A1:A10 that contain the value "Yes", you would enter the following formula: =COUNTIF(A1:A10, "Yes")


You can also use cell references in the formula instead of entering the criteria directly. For example, if you have the value "Yes" in cell B1, you could enter the following formula to count the number of cells in the range A1:A10 that contain the value in B1: =COUNTIF(A1:A10, B1)
