In LO 4.1 the COUNTIF Function has only two params: range and criteria.

Please fill in the blank ("___") below with a function name or tell me there is no such function:

SUM(range) is to SUMIF(range1,criteria,range2) as COUNT(range) is to ___(range1,criteria,range2)

COUNTIF would seem to be the logical answer but I don't think it supports the third parameter and 
thus it is not analogous to COUNT.

I'm wanting to use it as follows:


Where Error 4 means that the start miles in Q$3:Q7 and end miles in R$3:R7 are not properly paired 
and thus the miles driven on date A7 cannot be determined.

I realize that I can add two columns (e.g. AA and AB) such that the content of their cells 
(AA$3:AA7 and AB$3:AB7) is 1 if the corresponding cell in column Q or R respectively contains a 
number (otherwise it's a zero length string). Then I could use SUMIF(…,AA$3:AA7)=SUMIF(…,AB$3:AB7) 
as the condition within the IF(condition,true,false) construct in my formula.
