Count If and Is Blank


I am trying to do a formula to count the number of unapproved invoices.

I am counting the column "Approve/Deny" for when it is blank and have this: =COUNTIF([Approve/Deny]:[Approve/Deny], "")

I need to add another argument because it is counting all the rows even when there is no entries. So I tried to count the number of times when the Invoice Date column is not blank but the formula does not work.

Let me know if there is anything I am missing!

    Hi, Megan.

    You're already halfway there.

    Instead of COUNTIF(), use the function COUNTIFS() so that you can apply your second criterion, when Invoice Date is not blank.

    COUNTIFS( range1, criterion1, range2, criterion2, range_N, criterion_N )

    =COUNTIFS([Approve/Deny]:[Approve/Deny], "", [Invoice Date]:[Invoice Date], <>"")

    You'll find the Smartsheet functions reference here...
