Countifs with Row Reference



I have about 100 lines of Primary data in a column that will reference another sheet that I am summarizing. I am trying to create a COUNTIFS formula that will use the Row Reference for the Primary Column to count column data from the other sheet and allow me to copy the formula down.

My formula is fairly simple =COUNTIF({KPI DATA File Range 1}, "Pass") and the "Pass" changes for the other 3 columns. I just cannot seem to remember how to add the row reference.

Can anyone help?

    When you say "row reference" are you referring to a unique row value so it knows which row to perform the countif formula on?

    If so you would need a unique identifier on each row to use as a row reference.
