Countif - Countif

I understand the COUNTIF formula, but how can I subtract the results of
a column from the COUNTIF results of another column? Or can I?
For instance, if my first COUNTIF formula gives me 63 in column A, how
do I subtract the results of column B, which also contains a COUNTIF
formula that equals 14.

5 1
6 2
7 3
8 4
9
10

2 4

Not sure if this is what you mean, but the last row in each column is
the sum of the countif. Column A adds up to 6 but, since you said you
wanted to subtract the countif of Col. B, 2 is the net answer. If you
want to see the result of both, put the subtraction in a separate
cell.

If you want the 2 to be the answer, then =countif(\$a\$1:\$a\$6,"0")-b8.
The formula in b8 is simply =countif(\$b\$1:\$b\$6,"").

Why don't you give us your layout and the problem and the desired solution.
It's possible that a =sumproduct((rnga="joe")*(rngb=1)) would be your answer
