Formula for counting number of past due dates in 1 column for a dashboard
I have 1 sheet with all my formulas on it that my dashboard pulls the data from and a sheet that has all my tracking details on it.
The formula i'm getting from Chat GPT is =COUNTIFS({Past Due Activation Dates}, "< & TODAY()") but the answer i'm getting is 0. When it should be 4. I do have empty boxes within the column, because the column have a  and + on them to drop down further information for other columns.
what is the correct formula i should be using? I can't figure it out!
Thank you,
Caitlin
