COUNTIFS from multiple sheets

Options

I need to COUNTIFS from multiple sheets. I am using 3 sheets for this and the formula is in the Total sheet.

  • The sheets are named:
    • Total
    • Service Support KPI - Q2
    • Service Support KPI - Q3
  • I need it to look at a column in each Service Support sheet called Tech.
  • I need it to:
    • Compare to the Tech column in the Total sheet to the Tech column in the Service Support sheets
    • Or use CONTAINS
  • Then return a value of the total number of the tech from both Service Support sheets.


Here is the formula I am trying to use:

=COUNTIFS({Service Support KPI - Q2 Range 1}, CONTAINS([Tech Name]@row) + COUNTIFS({Service Support KPI - Q3 Range 1}, CONTAINS([Tech Name]@row)))

I keep getting an #INCORRECT ARGUMENT error.


Thanks in advance.

    Hi @Justin Mauzy 

    Hope you are fine, the formula need to be rectified.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 me to fix the formula directly on your sheet please share me as an admin on a sample copy of your sheets ( Source & Destination ) and i will Create the exact formula for you then you can copy it to your original sheet.

    It looks like you just have a misplaced parenthesis. You forgot to close out the first COUNTIFS before adding the second. Try this...

    =COUNTIFS({Service Support KPI - Q2 Range 1}, CONTAINS([Tech Name]@row)) + COUNTIFS({Service Support KPI - Q3 Range 1}, CONTAINS([Tech Name]@row))

    Hi @Justin Mauzy

    I hope you're well and safe!

    I'd be happy to take a quick look.

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, andree@workbold.com)

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic day!

    Best,

    Here are the screenshots:

    Service Support KPI sheet: The column is TECH.


    Total Sheet:


    The formula is in the Total Issues column on the Total sheet.


    • I need the formula to look at the Tech column in multiple sheets (Service Support KPI - Q2 and Service Support KPI - Q3)
    • I would like to compare it with the Tech Name column in the Total Sheet.
    • If the Tech column in the Service Support KPI sheet matches the Tech Name column in the Total sheet, I would like it to count it.
    • I will need to look at several other sheets to pull a total count.


    Thank you in advance.
