My Count If formula doesn't work with a < in the field i need to count
I want to count the number of rows which have the <50sqm in the Implementation stage column, i don't get an error with the below formula but this also doesn't give me the correct number, it just returns a 0.
=COUNTIFS([IMPLEMENTATION STAGE]:[IMPLEMENTATION STAGE], "<50sqm", [BUILD START DATE]:[BUILD START DATE], <=DATE(2020, 12, 31), [EVENT TYPE]:[EVENT TYPE], <>"Digital", [EVENT STATUS]:[EVENT STATUS], <>"Cancelled")
this formula works with every other status i have in the same column apart from the <100sqm option.
Any ideas how i can fix this without changing the data to say "under 50 sqm"
