COUNT 

Excel provided one most important keyword that is COUNT function. COUNT Functions used to count total number of cells in a selected range of data. COUNT function's return total number only those cells that contain numbers. COUNT function ignores empty cells or those contain text. If a number is later added to an empty cell or inserted into new row then function will be automatically updated to include this new data.

Count, Max, Min Function in Excel

 COUNT function formula

=COUNT (range) 

For example calculate total number of sales Person then formula become as below

=COUNT(B4:B9)

Result: 6 

See Figure 2.

COUNTIF 

The COUNTIF function combines the IF functions and COUNT function in Excel. This combination return number of times specific data is found in a selected group of cells. The IF portion of the function determines what data meets the specified criteria and the COUNT part does the counting. 

COUNTIF function formula 

=COUNTIF (range,condition) 

For example calculate total number which value greater than $15000from column “Total” then formula become as below 

=COUNTIF(G4:G9,F14) 

Result: 3 

F14 is a cell index where we have defined condition. 

See Figure 2. 

COUNTIFS 

Excel's COUNTIFS function can be used to count up the number of data records in a selected range that match specific criteria. COUNTIFS function allowing you to specify from 2 to 127 criteria rather than just one as in COUNTIF. 

COUNTIFS function formula

=COUNTIFS (range, range, …..n) 

For example calculate total number which value greater than $5000from “January”, $6000 from “February” and $7000 from “March”column then formula become as below 

=COUNTIFS(D4:D9,F15,E4:E9,G15,F4:F9,H15) 

Result: 1 

F15, G15, H15 are a cell index where we have defined formula. 

See Figure 2.

MAX

MAX function will be return maximum numeric value from selected range 

MAX function formula

=MAX(Range) 

For example I want to find out maximum value from moths column (January, February, March) then formula become as below 

=MAX(D4:F9) 

Result: $9,568.00 

See Figure 2. 

MIN 

MIN function will be return minimum numeric value from selected range 

MIN function formula

=MIN(Range) 

For example I want to find out minimum value from moths column (January, February, March) then formula become as below 

=MIN(D4:F9) 

Result: $1,205.00

See Figure 2.
