Formula Formatting Question

Please forgive the newbie question but I am trying to get a count of services performed across columns from two sheets with a specific criteria:

  1. Current Tracker
  2. Tracker Archive

The formula I am using returns INCORRECT ARGUMENT SET

COUNTIFS({Request Tracker Range 1}, "Edit Seat", {Request Tracker Archive Range 2}, "Edit Seat")

I am sure that I am not bracketing the argument correctly but all my attempts at variation return the same error.

Any hints are appreciated.

    The syntax is correct. The issue is that the ranges are not the same size on the same sheet. What you will need to do is use two separate COUNTIFS and add them together.

    =COUNTIFS({Request Tracker Range 1}, "Edit Seat") + COUNTIFS({Request Tracker Archive Range 2}, "Edit Seat")
