We can countif the numbers whose absolute values are greater than or less than a certain value with formulas easily in Excel.

Select a blank cell you will place the counting result into, type the formula =SUMPRODUCT(--(ABS(B2:B13)<=60)) (B2:B13 is the range you will count if absolute values are less than the given value, and 60 is the given value ) into it, and press the Enter key.

And now the numbers whose absolute values are less than the given number has been counted out. See screenshot:

 

Notes:

(1) For counting numbers whose absolute values are greater than the given number, please replace the “<=” with “>=”, and the formula will show as =SUMPRODUCT(--(ABS(B2:B13)>=60)).

(2) You can also apply this formula =COUNTIF(B2:B13,">=-60")-COUNTIF(B2:B13,">=60") to count the numbers whose absolute values are less than the given value.


If we can convert all negative numbers to positive, we can apply the normal COUNTIF function to count the numbers whose absolute values are greater than or less than a certain value easily. This method will introduce Kutools for Excel’s Change Sign of Values utility and the COUNTIF function to solve this problem at ease.
