COUNTIFS formula troubleshooting - multiple criteria and checkboxes

Options

Hi SmartSheets Community,

I'm new to Smartsheet (but know some basic Excel), but am getting stumped on this formula. Can you advise what I'm doing wrong?

I'm trying to create a formula that 1) counts either Red or Blue cells in another spreadsheet column (Other Sheet Range 1), and then 2) counts a checkmark (or no check mark). When I enter this in, I get #UNPARSEABLE. Any guidance on what I'm doing wrong?


Checkmark formula:

=COUNTIFS({Other Sheet Range 1}, OR(@cell = "Red", @cell = "Blue"), {Other Sheet Range 5}, =1))


No Checkmark formula:

=COUNTIFS({Other Sheet Range 1}, OR(@cell = "Red", @cell = "Blue"), {Other Sheet Range 5}, 0))

    Try the below: (You had an extra parenthesis at the end in both the formula and also changed =1 to just 1)

    =COUNTIFS({Other Sheet Range 1}, OR(@cell = "Red", @cell = "Blue"), {Other Sheet Range 5}, 1)
    
    =COUNTIFS({Other Sheet Range 1}, OR(@cell = "Red", @cell = "Blue"), {Other Sheet Range 5}, 0)
