    Hi @Samuel Dowdy Jr.

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You need to modify the formula if you reference the same columns or another one.

    Try something like this.

    =COUNTIF(CHILDREN(), "Red")
    


    =COUNTIF(CHILDREN(ColumnName@row), "Red")
    

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
