Metric Sheet Formula


Hello - I am trying to reference multiple columns in another sheet for a formula, but the columns are not next to each other in the sheet that I am referencing, is there a way to reference columns not next to each other?

In the end, what I am trying to do is get a count of how many times this person's name appears in the multiple columns AND there is no date in the due date column.

To find the name I would need to use columns 2, 5, 8, 11, 15. Then the due date columns would be 4,7,10,13

    Hi @j.cantwell

    I hope you're well and safe!

    We could probably use a so-called helper column, but it depends on your specific structure and need.

    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,

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
