I am using this formula =COUNTIFS([CHECKBOX FY-21]:[CHECKBOX FY-21],=1)+"'

Not working to count the total of boxex with a checkmark in column FY-21


Answers

  • You aren't reading the value of the checkbox and I don't think your range is correct.

    You have this:

    =COUNTIFS([CHECKBOX FY-21]:[CHECKBOX FY-21],=1)+"'


    For range:

    =COUNTIFS([CHECKBOX FY-21]X:[CHECKBOX FY-21]Y , Criteria)

    Where X is the row you want to start at and Y is the row you want to end at


    For Criteria:

    You need to change the criteria to include the checkbox values

    =COUNTIFS(rangeX: rangeY, [FY-21]@row = 1 )

    Here's what I would write to check how many boxes are checked in the Checkbox column from Row 1 through Row 4

    =COUNTIF([Checkbox]1:[Checkbox]4, [Checkbox]@row = 1)

    =COUNTIFS([CHECKBOX FY-21]1:[CHECKBOX FY-21]33,[CHECKBOX FY-21]@row =1) this is what I come up with, and it does not work, however I do want to count all rows in column FY-21

    Hi @Yanneth

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    • If it's placed in another column, than the range.
    =COUNTIFS([CHECKBOX FY-21]:[CHECKBOX FY-21], 1)
    
    • If it's placed in the same column as the range.
    =COUNTIFS([CHECKBOX FY-21]:[CHECKBOX FY-21], 1)+""
    

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
