logic that returns a count

I am trying to compare one column to another column and if the two conditions
I am looking at are true, I would like it to be counted. Eventually adding
all occurances of those two conditions.

EX
A B C D F
G
1 5/14/2006 Indiana/01 John Doe enroll mail enter
2 5/14/2006 Indiana/02 John Doe enroll mail enter
3 5/14/2006 Indiana/01 Jane Plur enroll mail enter
4 5/14/2006 Indiana/03 John Paul enroll mail enter
5 5/14/2006 Indiana/01 Joe Dirt salary fax

I want the result to capture the "B" column if it says "Indiana/01" and then
the "D" column if it says "enroll" and add all of the occuances of both of
those and spit out a value.
I would greatly appreciate any help I can get on the matter.

thanks Danny

Enter a formula in column H:

=if(AND(b1="Indiana/01",d1="enroll"),1,0)

Drag this formula down the spreadsheet and then at the bottom of that column
use the formula:

=sum(d1:d###) where ### is the row number of the last entry.

logic that returns a count

Try this array* formula:

=SUM(IF((B1:B500="Indiana/01")*(D1500="enroll"),1,0))

* As this is an array formula, once you have typed it in (or
subsequently edit it) you need to use CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER instead of just
ENTER. If you do this correctly, then Excel will wrap curly braces { }
around the formula - you must not type these yourself.

I have assumed the data is in rows 1 to 500 - adjust to suit.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, Ian. I Tried this but it did not seem to work the way that I was
wanting it too. I will keep this and use it in the future for my inventory
totals!

Pete,
I think this is exactly what I was looking for. I tried something similar
to this and it kept returning a #value? Is there a way to use this when
there are blank cells as well?

I think you will get #VALUE if you do not commit the formula with
CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER or if you have errors in the columns. It should work
with spaces in either B or D because these will return FALSE, and so 0
will be added to the cumulative sum - why not try it?
