Default How can I count items in a filtered list?

Is a data validation drop down list.

Try this:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A100="Netherlands"),--(B1:B10="July"))

Better to use cells to hold the criteria.

D1 = Netherlands
E1 = July

=SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A100=D1),--(B1:B100=E1))

Is that a data validation drop down list (or maybe a combo box) or is it
an
Auto Filter drop down?

Hi,

I'm hoping that someone can help me..
I am trying to count how many export has been done for each Region for
July,
how many for August and so on.
I'll try to make myself a bit clear. For example:
My first column (A1:A100) contains 10 different Regions (Netherlands,
Italy,
Spain etc). The second column (B1:B100) contains months ( July, August,
September, October etc). I would like to know if there is formula to
count
how many times Netherlands July appears in those 2 columns.
In both columns data must be chosen from a drop down menu..
Hope I made myself clear.. Can this be done ?
Thanks
Antonella

This will "COUNTIF" B2:B100 = "A" in a filtered list:

=SUMPRODUCT(SUBTOTAL(3,OFFSET(B2:B100,ROW(B2:B100)-ROW(B2),0,1)),--(B2:B100="A"))

news do anybody know, how to use "countif" with filtered lists?

the function subtotal does not allow conditions (e.g. "name")
the function countif does it, but it count hidden cells, too

thank you for your ideas

be
able

count the number of cells in the filtered data. Anyone know how

this?
CountA returns the number of cells in the unfiltered data.
