Stumped: COUNTIF Formula for 4 criteria and 2 ranges.
Hello! This is my first time utilizing the Smartsheet Community 😊
I am trying to develop a report that highlights the number of requests across four different categories (RFPs, New Programs, Funding Rounds, and Rolling Applications) within four fiscal quarters.
So ideally, I want a formula on my sheet summary to tell me:
 How many requests per category in Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4.
I want to note that the range includes two columns: Type and Fiscal Quarter.
Any suggestions on the formula would be very helpful!

Welcome @Rhonda B.
Try
=COUNTIFS(Type:Type,"RFP",[Fiscal Quarter]:[Fiscal Quarter],"Q1")
Type:Type means the entire column called Type
For Fiscal Quarter we need to use the square brackets as there is a space in the name
You do not need parenthesis around the things to count.

I appreciate the help! Unfortunately, that did not work. It says #Invalid Data Type. Also I don't think this formula accounts for all four categories: RFP, New Programs, Funding Rounds or Rolling Applications. Would I just copy and paste the original formula three other times?

Interesting! That's the exact formula I used and it worked for me.
What are your column types? Both of mine are dropdowns. Not sure if that matters.
Also, to address your question about the other types:
 If you wanted this particular Summary to count just the RFPs, then this is the formula you would use.
 If you wanted this formula to count ALL Q1 requests, regardless of type, then you just need a simple =COUNTIF([Fiscal Quarter]:[Fiscal Quarter], "Q1")
