    Also tried this:

    =COUNTIFS([Stage:Stage], ="Active - Commit", OR "Active - High Probability")

    COUNTIFS is used when you want to verify that two or more conditions exist. It looks like you want to ensure that ONE of two possible conditions exist. You would want to use COUNTIF instead.

    =COUNTIF(OR(Stage:Stage = "Active - Commit", Stage:Stage = "Active - High Probability"))

    Hi @Sean Maney

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    =COUNTIFS(Stage:Stage, OR(@cell = "Active - Commit", @cell = "Active - High Probability"))

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

    Another Q for you...

    I want to a count of records between today and today +30. This is what I've written.....

    =COUNT([Expected Order Date]:[Expected Order Date], >TODAY(), <TODAY(30))

    This works: =COUNT([Expected Order Date]:[Expected Order Date], <TODAY(30)) but I really need to count to start from TODAY. That formula looks backwards in infinity

    =COUNTIFS([Expected Order Date]:[Expected Order Date], > TODAY(), [Expected Order Date]:[Expected Order Date], <= TODAY(30))
