countif Column A and excule column B if it's cancelled

I have a spreadsheet that has column A with project type and column B with
the status. I need to count all projects of a certain type in column A that
do not have a status = Cancelled in column B. The formulas as in another
worksheet.

I've been trying to use this formula but it's not correct:

=COUNTIF(Projects!\$A:\$A,"Home")-COUNTIF(Projects!\$B:\$B,"Cancelled")

I'm not sure if Countif is the right function to use. would Sumproduct be
better?

Hi!

Try this:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Projects!\$A1:\$A100="Home"),--(Projects!\$B1:\$B100<"Cancelled"))

Note: you can't use entire columns as range arguments with Sumproduct
(unless you're using Excel 2007 beta)

Better to use cells to hold the criteria:

C1 = Home
C2 = Cancelled

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Projects!\$A1:\$A100=C1),--(Projects!\$B1:\$B100<C2))

countif Column A and excule column B if it's cancelled

try = sumproduct(--(A1:A64000="Home"),--(B1:B64000<"Cancelled"))
a specific range must be specified and not an entire column

that formula works great - thanks.

I have a column C now that has the revenue amount. how would I do the
formual to add up the revenue of only the projects for that project type that
aren't cancelled?

thanks again
