Trying to add informtion from two sheets

I have two sheets with the same column and I am trying to write a formula that says to only count the cells that say "Red" in them. I got it to work with a single sheet but I need the total to be from two sheets, the current and the archived.

This is how I wrote it but its not working

=COUNTIF([REPORTING Screeners onsite]:[REPORTING Screeners onsite], "Red")+(Count({Biometric Testing Request Form Range 1}:{Biometric Testing Request Form Range 1}, "Red"))

Help?

    Hi Connie, try the following formula:

    =COUNTIF([REPORTING Screeners onsite]:[REPORTING Screeners onsite], "Red")+COUNTIF({Biometric Testing Request Form Range 1}:{Biometric Testing Request Form Range 1}, "Red")

    I am assuming that you are referring the range, {Biometric Testing Request Form Range 1}:{Biometric Testing Request Form Range 1}, is where the column contains the Red values in the other sheet.

    I updated my sheet refrence name so they would match and updated my formula but I'm getting a Unparseable error

    =COUNTIF([REPORTING Screeners onsite]:[REPORTING Screeners onsite], "Red")+COUNTIF({REPORTING Screeners onsite}:{REPORTING Screeners onsite},"Red")

    Hi @Connie Cochran

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Are you adding the formula in one sheet where you want to count from that sheet and another sheet?

    Try something like this.

    =COUNTIF([REPORTING Screeners onsite]:[REPORTING Screeners onsite], "Red")+COUNTIF({REPORTING Screeners onsite},"Red")

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
