If AND Countifs formula help


Hi - Trying to have a boxed checked if info from 2 fields on a row on sheet A are found on sheet B in the same row.

=IF(AND(COUNTIFS({UCA Vendor}, [Vendor]@row, {UCA E#}, [E #]@row, >0, 1, 0)))

So IF data in "UCA Vendor" on sheet B matches "vendor" on sheet A....AND "UCA E#" on sheet B matches "E#" on sheet A - check the box.

Hopefully the fields don't need to be combined on both sheets for this to work???

    I think you've actually overcomplicated it, which is good because it is much easier to simplify than to add complexity.

    COUNTIFS in Smartsheet formulas is, by its nature, and AND formula. What you're doing is saying COUNT IF a AND IF b. So you don't need the AND function for the formula at all. I think what you're looking for is:

    =IF(COUNTIFS({UCA Vendor}, [Vendor]@row, {UCA E#}, [E #]@row) > 0, true, false)
