Updating Existing Formula: Counting Metrics


Hello! I am working on a formula that I had once before that is not working when I transfer it to a new sheet and update the names of the rows that I wanted to add.

Prior Formula: =SUMIFS(CHILDREN(), CHILDREN([Recruiter Name]@row), AND(@cell <> "Full Time >0.5",

@cell + ROUNDDOWN(SUMIF(CHILDREN([Recruiter Name]@row), "Part Time/PRN", CHILDREN()) * 0.5)

The formula needed to count 1 for the Full Time hires, .5 for the part time/prn hires (rounded down), transfers, subtract for each ft rescinded and .5 rounded down for each of the PT/PRN Rescinded, and subtract for the 90 Day Terms.

An example: Recruiter 17 had:

17 FT Hires

24 PT/PRN Hires (counts for 12)

11 Transfers

but also had

4 ft rescind

5 pt/prn rescind (counts for 2)

0 prior month rescind

and 1 90 day term

Desired outcome would be for the parent to measure the children and output the correct number with the specified .5 round downs on the appropriate spaces.

    Hi Aimee,


    =SUM(CHILDREN())-ROUNDUP(SUMIFS(Children(), CHILDREN([Recruiter Name]), @cell ="Full Time >0.5")*0.5)-ROUNDUP(SUMIFS(Children(), CHILDREN([Recruiter Name]), @cell ="Part Time/PRN")*0.5)-ROUNDUP(SUMIFS(Children(), CHILDREN([Recruiter Name]), @cell ="PT/PRN Rescind")*0.5)

    Work? Help?
