I have a smartsheet with MANY columns; I need to do a countif based on 3 of them. This portion works:

=COUNTIFS({Quarter Created On}, "Q3", {GEO}, "AMERICAS")

When I try to add this, it all falls apart: {EA 2.0 Architecture Selection}, FIND("Collab")

I tried this just to see if I could get the right count of rows with Collab in them; I get 0 - I'm guessing that could be because this is not referencing the whole column?

=COUNTIF({2H FY22 Cross Arch SPIFF Team Registrati Range 11}, HAS(@cell, "Collab"))This column is a multi select and will have a variety of entries.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you tried using the CONTAINS function with that third criterion set?

    Yes. That did not help. But with some help from an associate, this is what he came up with and it works: =COUNTIFS({Quarter Created On}, $[Column11]@row, {GEO}, [Column13]@row, {2H FY22 Cross Arch SPIFF Team Registrati Range 11}, HAS(@cell, $[Column7]@row))

    This eliminates the hard coding that I had above which is always a good idea.
