Hello,

I am trying to get help with stats.

I have a spreadsheet which shows the date a specific action was started in each row. I need to be able to count how many actions (rows) were started each week, but I have no idea how to manage this, I thought it would be COUNTIF, but none of the formulas I have tried worked.

Added to this - if I can ever sort it out.

I also need to count which actions (rows) were completed between specified dates

in my region excel dates are entered as m/d/yy and not as you entered.

date recd query date resolved wk num recd wk num reslvd
5/12/2009 a 7/27/2009 20 31
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

the formula in d2 is
=WEEKNUM(A2)
copy D2 down
formula in E2 is
=WEEKNUM(C2)
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

in B10 the formula is
=COUNTIF(D2:D8,31)

in C10 the formula is
=SUMPRODUCT((D2:D8=31)*(E2:E8=31))

in D10 the formula is
=SUMPRODUCT((D2:D8=30)*(E2:E8=31))

Post a small extract of data if necessary with fictitious data due to security reasons
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
