COUNTIFS always returns 0
I can't get my COUNTIFS equation to work, it always just returns 0, can anybody help?
=COUNTIFS([Column A]@row, "None", [Column B]@row, "None", [Column C]@row, "None", [Column D]@row, "None", [Column E]@row, "None", [Column F]@row, "None")
Best Answer

Hello @Sarahh  Are you looking to count if "None" appears in any of the columns AF? You formula as written will only count if "None" appears in Column A, B, C, D, E and F.
The following formula might work for you which sum the total if columns AF equal "None"
=COUNTIF([Column A]@row, "None") + COUNTIF([Column B]@row, "None") + COUNTIF([Column C]@row, "None") + COUNTIF([Column D]@row, "None") + COUNTIF([Column D]@row, "None") + COUNTIF([Column E]@row, "None") + COUNTIF([Column F]@row, "None")
All seems to be working in the demo below,
I hope that is helpful to you in someway,
