Please, can some help I have a sheet that uses check boxes and trying to count the number of boxes in that have been ticked.  I am using this formula however it just returns a value of count 0


Any Ideas 


="Count: " + COUNTIF(CHILDREN(Sent47:Sent1), 1)

    Try this:


    ="Count: " + COUNTIF(Sent1:Sent47), 1)


    The use of CHILDREN in this case appears to be where the problem lies.


    This will count only rows 1 to 47.

    If you want the whole Sent row


    ="Count: " + COUNTIF(Sent:Sent), 1)


    as long as your formula is in a different row.
