### Google Spreadsheet Query function to count rows

Question:

( by Mo S )

Here's what my sheet looks like (based on form responses).
 Person Availability STATUS Bob Mondays, Tuesdays approved Joe Mondays, Wednesdays Fish Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays approved

Here's what i want the results to look like:

 RESULTS (on another sheet)) Mondays Tuesdays Wednesdays 2 2 1

Basically, the query function needs to count how many ppl are available on those days that are also approved.

The query function i currently use does not consider the 3rd column becuz i dont know how to make it:s

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

I am using firefox/win 7

Solution:

Have a look at the following screenshot of Sheet "Sheet1":

Have a look at the following screenshot of Sheet "Sheet2":

In the above sheet I have the following formula in Cell A2:
=arrayformula( countif( if( 'Sheet1'!C:C = "approved" ; 'Sheet1'!B:B ; "" ) ; "*"&A1:C1&"*" ) )
