Trying to count how many cells have text in them which is a link to a project plan in other sheet

Options

This is what I have started with:

=COUNTIFS({Prioritisation log - Forum Call Date}, >=[Start Date]1, {Prioritisation log - Forum Call Date}, <=[End Date]1, {Prioritisation log - Link to Project Plan} "text")

    Try this:

    =COUNTIFS({Prioritisation log - Forum Call Date}, >=[Start Date]1, {Prioritisation log - Forum Call Date}, <=[End Date]1, {Prioritisation log - Link to Project Plan}, ISTEXT(@cell))

    Use the ISTEXT function to check for any text value in a cell, and the @cell parameter performs a calculation on each row at the same time that the primary function (COUNTIFS) is evaluating the criteria in the range.
