# Counting Dates within a specific month

Options
✭✭✭✭

I am trying to count the number of entries per month. My formula for January specifically is below. Can anyone fix this?

=COUNTIF({Sourced Date}, MONTH(1))

I hope you're well and safe!

Yes, you would add the cross-sheet range instead of the sheet range.

Something like this.

```=COUNTIFS({Date Range}, IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = 1)
```

Make sense?

I hope that helps!

Be safe, and have a fantastic weekend!

Try this:

=COUNTIFS([Date Column]:[Date Column], IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = 1)

Then for February, just change the last # to 2:

=COUNTIFS([Date Column]:[Date Column], IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = 2)

Does this work if the source data is in another sheet?
