COUNTIF Cell Value is Negative



I don't yet see this question put out there, so here we go:

I have a column that has both negative and positive values. I would like to create a formula that counts how many negative values exist in that column. (This is for a sheet summary).

Currently my formula looks like this:

=COUNTIF([Delta: Projected Hours vs. Worked & Forecasted], <0)

*My column name is Delta: Projected Hours vs. Worked & Forecasted.

    Hi @ghurvitt

    You almost had it. You just need to reference the column slightly differently:

    =COUNTIF([Delta: Projected Hours vs. Worked & Forecasted]:[Delta: Projected Hours vs. Worked & Forecasted], <0)
