Is it possible to tweak COUNTIF to count everything but a certain criteria?


Here's my function that works when conditions are met:

=COUNTIFS(Name:Name, CONTAINS("Open", @cell), Location:Location, "TBD")

How can I adjust this so that it works when I want it to count cells where locaton isn't "TBD" -- putting in all the options of possible matches isn't feasible.

I've tried the NOT funtion, but must not be using it correctly as I keep getting errors.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
