Join Dennis Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video MAXIFS and MINIFS added to the COUNTIF/SUMIF family of functions, part of Excel Tips Weekly.
- [Voiceover] We've got two new functions…that were added recently to Excel, MAXIFs and MINIFs.…And it's worth reviewing not only what they can do,…but also the companion functions that have been around…for a while in Excel.…Let's start with the simple function COUNTIF.…An ideal function for tabulating totals out of a list.…I'm looking at this list over here.…We don't need to see the data to the left of it,…but in column C we've got status here.…There are four different kinds.…I simply want to know how often full time appears…in the column, or in other words how many full time people…do we have?…If I click on a cell and double-click its bottom edge…or press Control + DownArrow.…
