Countifs  Need an OR Statement not an AND statement
I need to set a Countifs formula that is an OR statement not an AND statement.
Basically I need to count Region Column if Experience is less than 2 in Two different columns. My Formula works but only if BOTH  RN Experience and Medic Experience is less than 2 years. I need it to count Region Column if One or the Other Column is less than 2 years. Below is my formula:
=COUNTIFS(Region:Region, "PacWest", [Paramedic Years Experience ]:[Paramedic Years Experience ], <2, [RN  Years Experience]:[RN  Years Experience], <2)
Any Thoughts?

You could use a helper column and use this formulas.
=IF(OR([Paramedic Years Experience]@row < 2, [RN Years Experience]@row < 2), 1, 0)
This column is labeled Column 28. Then add another column and use the following formula
=SUMIF(Region1:Region10, "PacWest", [Column28]1:[Column28]10)
So if Paramedic Years Experience is less the 2 or RnYears Experience is less than 2 it will return a 1
if not it will return a 0. The the second formula will sum if it is "PacWest"
