Count Formula

Hello I am looking for assistance with a formula as I need to count across multiple sheets. I am trying to capture the number of times a word appears. I selected the columns in which the word appears on both sheets and still not able to calculate the total. The formula I am trying to use below gives me an #Inparseable response. Looking for any assistance please and thank you!

=countif({sheet1}:{sheet2}, "word")

    You cannot create a range across multiple sheets. Instead, you can count each sheet separately and then add the two counts together.

    =COUNTIF({sheet1}, "word")+COUNTIF({sheet2}, "word")
