Formula Containing Two Separate Column Results


I am attempting to create a Smartsheet Summary field that contains a formula that provides the count of the number of risks I have in the risk column of a sheet combined with a status of not closed in a subsequent status column. This is the formula I have written but it is returning a parsing error:

=COUNTIF([Risk or Issue]:[Risk or Issue], ="Risk", [Status]:[Status], <>"Closed")

Any insight would be helpful.

Thank you in advance.

    Change to COUNTIFS. Try:

    =COUNTIFS([Risk or Issue]:[Risk or Issue], ="Risk", [Status]:[Status], <>"Closed")
