The template has just two tables to simplify how useful the COUNT function can be very quickly. The first table is pink and displays different types of cars and the dates that they were purchased. As a smart business owner, you would like to see how many cars were purchased for certain time periods.

Start by creating a similar table structure to the ones you see in the template. The next step will be to enter the COUNT function to get the desired result. You want to see how many cars were sold back in 2016. You would simply apply the following function.

=COUNTIFS(\$C\$5:\$C\$13,”>=”&DATE(E7,1,1),\$C\$5:\$C\$13,”<=”&DATE(E7,12,31))

The formula may look like a nightmare, but it’s actually pretty simple. You simply enter the ranges you want for your own document in the spaces you can see where they are applied for the example. The formula above uses the range C5-C13 and the entire E column to provide you with the correct answer.

It’s simply a matter of switching the ranges and dates to apply to your own template.
