Formula to COUNTIF with respect to the date column

These two formula are not working - ERROR - #unparseable. The solution I am looking for is to count the no. of MOUs in a calendar year (YTD 2023).

=COUNTIFS({MOU Status}, "Active", {Date of execution}, (@cell >= DATE(2023, 1, 1), @cell <= DATE(2023, 12, 31)))

=COUNTIFS({MOU Status}, "Active", {Date of execution}, >=DATE(2023, 1, 1), {Date of execution}, <=DATE(2023, 12, 31)))

Please help and suggest an alternative solution.

    Hi @SiddV47,

    You just need to add an AND function to the first formula as you have 2 date criteria:

    =COUNTIFS({MOU Status}, "Active", {Date of execution}, AND(@cell >= DATE(2023, 1, 1), @cell <= DATE(2023, 12, 31)))

    The # unparseable error is being caused as without the AND the 2nd date criteria is being read as a range (which it isn't), lacking any criteria.

    Hope this resolves your issue, but if not let us know!
