COUNT MATCHING CELLS
Dear Zafar,

This can be handled using COUNTIFS function in msexcel.

You need to list all the statuses in a separate range, say E2:E10. Assuming your data is in A1 to C25 as shown in your excel, you would need to use the COUNTIFS formula in following combinations:

1. for row 1 (model 660) and column (avail) = =COUNTIFS(\$B\$2:\$B\$25,A30,\$C\$2:\$C\$25,\$E\$7)+COUNTIFS(\$B\$2:\$B\$25,A30,\$C\$2:\$C\$25,\$E\$8)+COUNTIFS(\$B\$2:\$B\$25,A30,\$C\$2:\$C\$25,\$E\$2)+COUNTIFS(\$B\$2:\$B\$25,A30,\$C\$2:\$C\$25,\$E\$9)

2. for row 1 (model 660) and column (reline) = =COUNTIFS(\$B\$2:\$B\$25,A30,\$C\$2:\$C\$25,\$E\$3)

Interestingly, once you have the formula working, it will start making sense to you.

Please see the screenshot where I have highlighted the two result boxes.

I think this should meet your requirements.

Gulshan.
