Hi All

I am trying to do a COUNTIFS formula in the summary field. II can get it to work with COUNTIF, however COUNTIFS returns an error (Unparseable).

I am trying to get a count from two columns in the sheet to calculate in a summary field

  • Column 1 - Status
  • Column 2 - Unique
  • I wrote =COUNTIFS(Status:Status, ="Open",(Unque:Unique, ="Unique")

    Hi @andrew.taylor37161

    I hope you're well and safe!

    To add to Jeff's excellent advice/answer.

    COUNTIFS works fine with Summary fields as well.

    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 weekend!

    Try your formula with these modifications.

     =COUNTIFS(Status:Status, "Open", Unque:Unique, "Unique")

  • Hi Jeff

    Thanks for the information, unfortunately still errors.

    I am unsure whether COUNTIFS works with summary fields.

    Appreciate your efforts

  • Thank you all for your help.

    Jeff M, your answer worked, the following day. Considering that I was copy and pasting, I have no answer why I couldn't get it to work at the time, unless the sheet froze?

    In any case, I went back to it the following day, re-pasted what you had sent and voila, success.

    Again, appreciate the amazing knowledge available in this community.
