Description
DCOUNT (Array,Field,Criteria)
It counts the cells that contain numbers in a listed column or database that match the specified condition.
- The argument 'Field' is optional. If not mentioned, the function counts all the numbers from database that match the criteria.
- A 'column name' in quotes (e.g. "Salary") or 'column number' (e.g. 3, if Salary is 3rd column) can be used as 'field' argument.
- Criteria can be any range on the 'Calci' with minimum of one column and at least one row indicating the condition.
- The Criteria columns should not overlap the list of data.
- DCOUNTA() can be used to count the number of non-blank cells from a list of database that match a specified criteria.
