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, andree@workbold.com)

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
