    The FIND function actually outputs a number as opposed to a true/false. This means the NOT function won't work. Want you want is to say if the result of the FIND function equals zero (meaning not found).

    =COUNTIFS({PDCA Range 2}, "Production", {PDCA Range 1}, FIND("OK 3", @cell) = 0)

  • That worked...but now I am having a problem with it not counting Brian_Borders@na.honda.com in drop downs with multiple selections. It is only counting it when its the only thing selected. Formula =COUNTIFS({PDCA Range 4}, "Brian_Borders@na.honda.com", {PDCA Range 1}, FIND("OK 3", @cell) = 0).
