If you are using Excel 2007 or later, you may not be familiar with the new Countifs function. (Note the "s" on the end of the countif) This new function introduced in Excel 2007 operates like the original Countif function but allow you to specify multiple conditions
if you were doing something like countif(B:B,"samsung") then you would modify it to use the countifs function and add another condition such as:
You can add additional conditions in the same manner if you need to. Formulas show are for US English version of Excel. You may use a different list separator and would need to make your adjustments to account for regional settings.
hope that answers the question.
