Filter formula and comparing dates

Filter formula and comparing dates

Question:

How we can count, if we have data in a spreadsheet and we want to filter data and then Count in between specific dates.


For example:
Look at the following screenshot of a spreadsheet containing data:



So now we want to calculate no. of rows that have:
"A&C" in "Column K"
"enrolled" in "Column O"
Dates between "03/2/2012" and "03/28/2012" in "Column K"
"unknown" in "Column Q"


Solution:

Here is the formula:

=COUNTA(IFERROR(FILTER('Individual Status'!K:K;'Individual Status'!O:O="enrolled";'Individual Status'!P:P >= DATE(2012;3;2);'Individual Status'!P:P <= DATE(2012;3;28);'Individual Status'!K:K="A&C";'Individual Status'!Q:Q="unknown")))

The result of this formula in this example would be 2, as in above table (screenshot of spreadsheet), we have two rows that satisfy all conditions.

I hope you this tutorial will help you understanding the filtering of data by comparing dates.
