Formula to count blank cell in sheet summary

edited 04/17/23 in Smartsheet Basics


I have a column called Date PIP completed and I wanted to know what is the formula to use to count all the cells that does not have the date.

I saw this example earlier but I got unparseable as a response since I don't know what to put in for the bolded words.

"=COUNTIFS([Reim Status]:[Reim Status], ISBLANK(@cell)=1)".

    You don't need to put anything in where the bolded words are. That formula counts blank cells in that column, @cell just give it a reference point. Unparseable errors with a formula that simple typically means that there is an issue with your data. Is it possible that you have a corrupted cell or something?

    =COUNTIF([Column2]:[Column2], ISBLANK(@cell) = 1) is a functional formula.
