# Marrying three formulas together

Options
✭✭✭

I have three different formulas, containing various criteria, which I want to want to marry together and for which all things must be true: 1) project start date is less than 1/1/24; 2) go-live date is greater than 12/31/23 and 3) the project stage is "In progress" or "Waiting to start":

=COUNTIF({HR Projects Project Start Date}, <DATE(2024, 1, 1))

=COUNTIF({HR Projects Go-Live Date}, >DATE(2023, 12, 31))

=COUNTIFS({HR Projects - PMO Range 1}, OR(CONTAINS("In Progress", @cell), CONTAINS("Waiting to start", @cell)))

Give this a try:

=COUNTIFS({HR Projects Project Start Date}, < DATE(2024, 1, 1), {HR Projects Go-Live Date}, > DATE(2023, 12, 31), {HR Projects - PMO Range 1}, OR(CONTAINS("In Progress", @cell), CONTAINS("Waiting to start", @cell)))

Thank you, that's it! I thought that's what I wrote, but clearly not. 😉 THANKS so much!
