Using COUNTIF on a Range with Cross-Sheet References

I am attempting to use a COUNTIF formula on a column of cells that have VLOOKUP formulas pulling in information from another sheet. 

The COUNTIF formula returns a #NO MATCH. When I copy/paste the VLOOKUP info into text only, the COUNTIF formula works but this destroys the advantage of using a VLOOKUP formula in the first place as now I must manually re-enter the formula on each update.

Does anyone have a workaround for this?
