COUNTIF returning #NO MATCH
I have some sheet formulas that were working but once I made a few updates, not all return the #NO MATCH error. It's a simple COUNTIF formula that references a cell that populates from a VLOOKUP. When I recreated the formula on another blank sheet, it works fine but, as you can see below, the sheet formula will not work. Any help?

Hi @SASardy
COUNTIFS function should not return a NO MATCH error since it's not matching anything, unless one of the columns you're referencing has an error!
Even if just one cell has a formula error and you reference the entire column (including that one cell), the current formula will produce the same error.
Try wrapping an IFERROR around all your other formulas:
=IFERROR(formula, "")
This should then resolve your COUNTIFs formula looking at those other columns.

Thank you!
I brought some new data in and didn't realize a few of the cells had different info in them. When I wrapped the IFERROR around everything with a VLOOKUP, it fixed everything!
