I'm trying to put multiple values in the criteria of a COUNTIFS Formula. For example:

=COUNTIFS(Status:Status, ["Prioritized","In Proces"], [Automation Category]:[Automation Category], ["WorkFlow","Robotics"])

I'm getting an "UNPARSABLE" error. Would someone be able to help me with this. Thank you!

    Hi @Tahreem Tariq

    Hope you are fine, to do that you need to write your formula as following:

    =COUNTIFS(Status:Status, "Prioritized", Status:Status, "In Proces", [Automation Category]:[Automation Category], "WorkFlow", [Automation Category]:[Automation Category], "Robotics")

  • Hi @Bassam.M Khalil

    I hope you're doing well! Thank you for the help! I have plugged in this formula and it's not giving me an error but it's giving me the value 0 for all the formulas similar to this one.

    FORMULA: =COUNTIFS(Status:Status, "Prioritized", Status:Status, "In Process", [Automation Category]:[Automation Category], "Data Processing", [Automation Category]:[Automation Category], "Robotics", [Automation Category]:[Automation Category], "Workflow")

    The answer it's giving me is 0, when it should be 4. Would you happen to know what I am doing wrong with this formula?
