The formula pasted below works great if I want to count the number of projects completed in a year. How can I revise the formula so that I can count the number of projects completed in 2020?

    Hi @Mallory McFall

    Try something like this.

    IFERROR(YEAR(@cell); 0) = 2020

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

    You will want to remove the YEAR function completely.

    @Paul Newcome When I did that, it returned the value 0 - the correct value should be 6.

    @Paul Newcome I ended up using the following function to calculate the answer: {Completion Date}, CONTAINS([email protected], @cell))

    Thank you for your assistance !

    Happy to help. 👍️

    If you completion date range was referencing an actual date, the CONTAINS function will work, but so will Andree's solution of

    IFERROR(YEAR(@cell), 0) = 2020

    Based on the criteria in your originally provided formula, it appeared as if the data in the completion date range was just the year.
