Including a checkbox column in formula returns "INCORRECT ARGUMENT SET"

Hi all,

I am trying to make a formula that Calculates the hours spent on tasks with certain conditions. I have 2 arguments in my formula that are currently causing it to return this output. Here is the formula:

=SUMIFS({Custom Engineering Requests: Days To Complete}, {Custom Engineering Requests: Drawing Category}, "Custom", {Custom Engineering Requests: Request Type}, "Update", {Custom Engineering Requests: PO Received}, false, {Custom Engineering Requests: Week Completed}, [This Week]@row)

The 2 last arguments are what is making this formula fail from what I can gather. Those being:

{Custom Engineering Requests: PO Received}, false, {Custom Engineering Requests: Week Completed}, [This Week]@row

These both use cross sheet references. The first being a reference to a checkbox column in another sheet (trying to see if the checkbox is unchecked). The second being a reference to the "Week of completion" column from another sheet, and comparing it to the current week recorded on this sheet. Checking online, I can't seem to find where I went wrong in the syntax here, I am trying to check if the checkbox is unticked ({Custom Engineering Requests: PO Received}), and trying to make sure the date ({Custom Engineering Requests: Week Completed}) is equivalent to another.

For the date comparison, I also tried swapping out the last line with "{Custom Engineering Requests: Week Completed} ,@cell = [This Week]@row" as well as "{Custom Engineering Requests: Week Completed}, @cell = [This Week]1". Please find screenshots of the sheet below, any and all help would be appreciated.
