Hey there I have a countifs I'm working on however I am trying to count the instances of "Apples" only but not when it says "Apples and Bananas" or "Apples and Oranges" I only want it to return when it matches Apples and only apples in a cell.

Any time I try to do that for example:

=COUNTIFS(Status:Status, "Complete", [Task Name]:[Task Name], "Apples")

Any instance of Apples and Bananas also shows in it, when I just need Apples.
