Countif not working for entire column range


This was a formula that used to work and stopped working a few weeks ago - I've been troubleshooting and have found that if I select a range < 130 cells, the countif works (essentially counting how many of the cells there are in that column). But when I select a range larger than that or the entire column, I get an invalid operation error.

Other columns in the sheet work okay but are less complex.

Has anyone had this issue/resolved it somehow?

    Hi @iri

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Can you share the formula you're using?

    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, [email protected])

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
