referencing cells



I have notice anytime I try to reference a column in a formula it doesn't automatically recognizes the name and then I always get the unparseable error. For example in below I want Smartsheet to calculate all the item listed as test under the column implementation Manger.

=COUNT(Implementaiton Manager:Implementation Manager, "test")

Not sure what i am doing wrong when trying to reference the column name.

    Hi @Mkaur ,

    If the column name contains spaces (is not a single word) you need to place brackets around it:

    =COUNTIF([Implementation Manager]:[Implementation Manager], "test")

    Hope this helps!
