countif criteria issue

  • Hi, I have a spreadsheet I developed with a few macros for our local Sheep Dog Trial club. I’m now wanting to elevate it to a more user friendly application so I can offer it to other clubs.

    I have a section where I’m unsure how to fix and wonder if you could suggest an approach ?

    I have a cell with a date e.g. 27/1/2012 and another cell with time 6:00:00 a.m. I want to combine these two cell references into a combined cell, this combined cell is then used in a countif function as the "criteria" i.e. <27/01/2012 6:00:00 a.m.
    I already have a custom number field with this working BUT I want to write a macro that automates the user process of updating of the date cell annually and the criteria cells of which I have 8 each with a differing time block like the example above. So I'm wanting to try to reference the date part rather than manually edit each of these 8 criteria cells as I do now. I hope this makes sense. Apologises if not clear.

    Thanx

    Don't know about the macro part but in COUNTIF you could simply add those two values as the criteria, e.g. if your data range is column A - your date (for the criteria) is in B2 and time in C2 you can use


    =COUNTIF(A:A,"<"&B2+C2)
