COUNTIFS Adventures – Fall in Love with COUNTIFS in Excel

In this session, we go on an adventure through some advanced uses of the COUNTIFS function in Excel.

COUNTIFS is one of the most versatile functions in Excel. Primarily used for producing results for reports such as ‘how many complaints have been resolved in the last 7 days”, but it’s helpful in so many other scenarios too.  These other scenarios are what this presentation will focus on.  The session will cover comparing lists, ranking values with conditions, working with duplicate values and creating shrinking drop-downs.

Warning! You will fall in love with the COUNTIFS function.
