If countifs statement not working

Hello and thank you for reviewing my post!

My formula is only working when there are no duplicates in my rows but I need it to function even if there is a duplicate. Please see screenshots below.

Anytime there is more than one submission for Birmingham in the same month it is not checking the box. There are on occasion there will be more than one submission for the month but I still need the box to be checked.

    Hi @Angela Campbell

    Your current COUNTIFS statement is looking to see if the COUNT of rows that match the criteria is = 1, or exactly one.

    Try adding the greater - than symbol to this to say "greater than OR equal to 1", like so: >=

    =IF(COUNTIFS(formula) >= 1, 1, 0)

    Let me know if this works!
