How to Countif filtered data/list with criteria in Excel?
You may notice that no matter you have filtered your table or not, the COUNTIF function will ignore the filtering and return a fixed value. In some cases, you are required to count filtered data with a specific criteria, so how to get it done? In this article, I will introduce a couple of ways to Countif filtered data/list in Excel quickly.

In this article, I will take the following table as example. Here, I have filtered out Julie and Nicole in the Salesman column.
This method will guide you to add an extra help column, and then you can apply the COUNTIFS function to count the filtered data in Excel. (Note: This method requires you have filtered your original table before following steps.)
1. Find a blank cell besides the original filtered table, says Cell G2, enter =IF(B2="Pear",1,""), and then drag the Fill Handle to the range you need. (Note: In the formula of =IF(B2="Pear",1,""), B2 is the cell you will count, and the "Pear" is the criteria you will count by.)
Now a help column is added besides original filtered table. The "1" indicates it's pear in the Column B, while blank hints it's not pear in Column B.
2. Find a blank cell and enter the formula =COUNTIFS(B2:B18,"Pear",G2:G18,"1"), and press the Enter key. (Note: In the formula of =COUNTIFS(B2:B18,"Pear",G2:G18,"1"), the B2:B18 and G2:G18 are ranges you will count, and "Pear" and "1" are criteria you will count by.)
Now you will get the count number at once. Please note that the count number will not change if you disable filtering or change filtering.
If you want the count number changes as the filter changes, you can apply the SUMPRODUCT functions in Excel as following:
In a blank cell enter the formula =SUMPRODUCT(SUBTOTAL(3,OFFSET(B2:B18,ROW(B2:B18)-MIN(ROW(B2:B18)),,1)),ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Pear",B2:B18))+0), and press the Enter key.

(1) In the above formula, B2:B18 is the range you will count, and "Pear" is the criteria you will count by.
(2) The returning value will change when you disable filtering or filtering changes.
