COUNT IF NOT EQUAL TO ZERO

I would like to count the number of cells in a column that does not equal
zero and then multiply each count by an adjacent number.

EG.
no of shots days per shot
6 3
0 0
3 5

i want to calculate the "days per shot" column that does not equal zero and
then multiply each count by the no. of shot. therefore 1*6+1*3 = 9.

The main problem i am having is how to count when something does not equal a
certain argument - COUNTIF NOT????

any ideas?

Assuming the sample data is in A2:B4
Try: =SUMPRODUCT((A2:A4)*(B2:B4<0))

Adapt the ranges to suit. Note that you can't use entire col references
(A:A, B:B, etc) in SUMPRODUCT

thanks - silly question but how do you inset greater than zero in a function
OR does not equal zero?

.. greater than zero
Key in: 0

.. does not equal zero

Key in: <0
("<" means: does not equal)

I have tried this and many combinations - it is not working.

do I include the & symbol and the ; symbol?

Can you just key-in from the keyboard ?

Or try a direct copy of the formula from the post
and then paste into a cell in your sheet ?

I don't know what is not working for you ..

Perhaps try this sample file with the implemented formula inside:

at the top in the page, just above the ads)

What &, what ;?

Do you have a continental version of Excel? If so, it would be something
like

=IF(A10;"Yes";"No")

& only comes in with COUNTIF/SUMIF and comparison to a cell

=SUMIF(\$A:\$A;""&C1,\$B:\$B)

You're probably in deep slumber now, Bob <bg, but when you're up ...
If the OP opens the file posted in her "continental version" of Excel, would
the formulas therein be automatically converted in terms of the commas to
semicolons, etc ? Thanks.

Hi Max,

Indeed I was, kicking out the z's.

Unfortunately, Excel is not that smart. It is the equivalent of you putting
in semi-colons, like
=IF(A1=17;A1;B1)
same error.

VBA has a strange twist. If you set a formula there, you have to use
English, like
Actyivcell.Formula = SUM(A1:A10)
and it gets translated, so German comes out as =SOMME(A1:A10). I am not sure
if you also have to use commas and it gets translated to semi-colons, I
don't have a continental version of an OS and Excel, but I doubt it as I
would have thought VBA uses the regional settings (but that is purely a
guess, and haven written has set doubt in my mind :-)),.
