COUNTIFS error

So, a simple formula (that worked before), is now not working:

=COUNTIFS([Approved 2024 $$]:[Approved 2024 $$], "", [Targeted Area]:[Targeted Area], "Atopic Dermatitis")

Even if I reverse the [Approved 2024 $$]:[Approved 2024 $$] and put it at the end; it won't look at that column and count those "out". It just counts the Total in the [Targeted Area] column.

What am I doing wrong?

    Hi @Susan Swisher


    The formula seems to be counting the items when Approved 2024 $$ is blank AND Targeted Area is Atopic Dermatitis. Is that what you're trying to do? If you're trying to get a count where the Approved 2024 $$ is not blank, your formula should be =COUNTIFS([Approved 2024 $$]:[Approved 2024 $$], <>"", [Targeted Area]:[Targeted Area], "Atopic Dermatitis")

    Thanks,
