Hello everyone, I'm new to smartsheets and so far my experience has been positive but I'm heading into areas that go beyond what I have learned so far, I used basic formulas to do counts using =SUM, and =COUNTIF but I only have been able to use it to do basic counts. I need a formula that will look at at multiple columns in my case a project name list that has multiple project names and I have another column that has the corresponding status, like completed, In progress, and In Queue. I want the formula to look at the project name column and at the status column and based on the project name I want only to count and tell me how many are in Queue for each different project number. I'm sharing a part of my sheet in hopes it can explain what I'm trying to achieve. thank you in advance if anyone can assist.

    Absolutely, you can use =Countifs and =Sumifs, which allow you to indicate multiple criteria for each count.

    Hi Adolfo,

    Try something like.

    =COUNTIFS(Project:Project; "Project Name"; Status:Status; "Status to count")    

    The same version but with the below changes for your and others convenience.  

    =COUNTIFS(Project:Project, "Project Name", Status:Status, "Status to count")

    Depending on your country you’ll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did it work?

    Have a fantastic week!
