Help me create the correct filter/formula

Options

Hi!


I have a database that tracks start and end dates for volunteers. I need to apply a filter to the database, then count individual distinct entries after the filter is applied. I've tried creating a COUNT(DISTINCT()) Formula but it counts all the entries regardless of the filter.

So I was hoping someone had a genius idea of how I can just count the distinct lines/entries after the filter is applied.


Help?

    Hi @Christina Riley

    Hope you are fine, Please add a copy of your sheet or a screenshot (after removing or replacing any sensitive information). This will make it easier for me to provide the appropriate answer to your question.


    Or if you like to fix the formula directly on your sheet please share me as an admin on a copy of your sheets ( Source & Destination ) and i will write the exact formula for you then you can copy it to your original sheet.

    Hi @Christina Riley

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Have you explored using a report instead?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
