I want to count how many times a certain word appears in a column if it's in the same row --- if another word appears in another column.

I am working with 2 sheets.

I want to get the information in the 1st sheet, while looking into the 2nd sheet.

Column G has either deployed or pending

Column J has Department names

I want to get the number of times it says Deployed if it falls in the same row of a particular department name

I tried Various Countifs, but unsuccessful.

One countifs I tried was:

=COUNTIFS('Full List'!G:G, "deployed",'Full List'!J:J,"Operations")

Full List is the sheet name Operations is the department name

Any help will be appreciated

    =COUNTIFS('Full List'!G:G, "deployed",'Full List'!J:J,"Operations") As you say works perfectly for me, what seems to be the problem with it? – Christofer Weber Oct 21 '16 at 6:03

You can use Sumproduct instead the formula will be:
You can change G2:G14 and J2:J14 to your Data references but remember it should be the same number of rows in column G as column J in order to have a number result
And use -- to convert logical True to 1
When it is True in both column the formula will add 1 to the result
With countifs the formula is working:
It gives the same result, check the references and the data
