What is the formula that I will need to track how many completed projects an employee has worked on


Here it the formula I was trying but I kept getting an #INVALID REF.

=COUNTIFS({DCIM Projects 2020-2021 Range 1}, ="Complete", AND({DCIM Projects 2020-2021 Range 2,="Susan ****"})) (Replaced employees last name with * for privacy)

We have a few projects that take multiple employees and some that it is individual. I am hoping that the formula will pull the information every time the employee is listed whether it is in a group or individual.

Any help you can offer would be appreciated

    A few things:

    1. You don’t need the AND function, the COUNTIFS assumes AND with the multiple conditions.
    2. The last } is in the wrong place. It should come after “Range 2” in the second condition range.
    3. The equals sign on the condition isn’t needed either.

    =COUNTIFS({DCIM Projects 2020-2021 Range 1}, "Complete", {DCIM Projects 2020-2021 Range 2}, “Susan ****")

  • Jason - I want to thank you for your help on this. The formula works now.

  • I just realized that this formula worked to find the projects that Sue worked by her self but it did not add the times she worked with another co-worker.

    There is an example of that in the screen shot I attached above where she worked on a project with Jesse ****.

    Can you help me with what the formula would look like to accomplish that?

    You would need a HAS function for that...

    =COUNTIFS({DCIM Projects 2020-2021 Range 1}, "Complete", {DCIM Projects 2020-2021 Range 2}, HAS(@cell, "Susan ****"))


  • Thank you Paul for the help with this. I appreciate it.
