I am trying to get help with stats.
I have a spreadsheet that shows the date a specific action was started in each row. I have to be able to count how many actions (rows) were started each week, I thought it would be COUNTIF, but none of the formulas that I have tried have worked.
I also need to keep track of which actions (rows) were completed between specified dates.
Here is an example:
Date How Received Query Date Resolved
12/05/2009 E-mail Invoice for SG 27/07/2009
23/07/2009 E-mail Invoice for WHK 27/07/2009
25/07/2009 Phone Tax refund 31/07/2009
27/07/2009 E-mail Fee Invoice 28/07/2009
28/07/2009 E-mail Fee Invoice 29/07/2009
28/07/2009 E-mail AA to change pens 29/07/2009
31/07/2009 E-mail AA to change pens 10/08/2009
Out of the information above what I want to be able to see in the end is that:
- how many queries were received in the week 27/7/2009 - 31/7/2009 ie 4
- how many queries of that week were resolved in that week ie 3
- how many queries of previous weeks were resolved in that week ie 3
If you could help that would be brilliant
In my region excel dates are shown as m/d/yy and not as you entered.
your data is like this
5/12/2009 a 7/27/2009 20 31
the formula in d2 is
7/23/2009 s 7/27/2009 30 31
7/25/2009 d 7/31/2009 30 31
7/27/2009 f 7/28/2009 31 31
7/28/2009 g 7/29/2009 31 31
7/28/2009 h 7/29/2009 31 31
7/31/2009 k 8/10/2009 31 33
copy D2 down
formula in E2 is
copy E2 down
now see the results
this from cell A9
rel dates recd same wk wk 30 to 31
7/27-7/31 4 3 2
