Excel - COUNTIFS with an OR?

Asked By RobofM on 19-Jan-09 06:31 PM
Can countifs work with an "OR" in it? Seperating in the below formula the BO
& AY criteria into 2 countifs works but I would like to do it with just 1
countifs if possible.

Doesn't
work:=COUNTIFS(AMC!$C$2:$C$1796,OR($BO$67,$AY$67),AMC!$R$2:$R$1796,"="&$A85,AMC!$E$2:$E$1796,"="&CT$67)

Does
work:=COUNTIFS(AMC!$C$2:$C$1796,$BO$67,AMC!$R$2:$R$1796,"="&$A85,AMC!$E$2:$E$1796,"="&CT$67)+COUNTIFS(AMC!$C$2:$C$1796,$AY$67,AMC!$R$2:$R$1796,"="&$A85,AMC!$E$2:$E$1796,"="&CT$67)

You can try something like this:

The "OR" criteria has to be entered as array constants, not cell references.
If the criteria is TEXT enclose it in quotes:

=SUM(COUNTIFS(AMC!$C$2:$C$1796,{"x","y"},...........

=SUM(COUNTIFS(AMC!$C$2:$C$1796,{10,20},...........
