Count nonblank cells in a row
Hello,
My smartsheet tracks document reviews and approval. I'm trying to create a formula that returns the number of review rounds per document, by counting "resubmission due" cells if they are not blank. I tried this formula for the first two rounds as a test, but the result is only "1" despite two cells being populated: =COUNTIFS([Resubmission 01 Due]@row, <>"", [Resubmission 02 Due]@row, <>"")
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
Thank you!

Hey @Dana G
The formula is counting the instances that both Resubmission 01 and Resubmission 02 are not blank. One approach to remedy this is to have two COUNTIFS and add them together.
=COUNTIFS([Resubmission 01 Due]@row, <>"")+ COUNTIFS([Resubmission 02 Due]@row, <>"")
Will this work for you?

Aha! Thanks @Kelly Moore that did the trick!
