Need help with formula using COUNTIFS and Contains
Aneri
✭✭
Hello, I am trying to use a formula that will count if a project type contains the word Planned and if the state (using symbols) is red. When I use the formula below, I get an "#INVALID DATA TYPE" error message.
=COUNTIFS(AND({Audit&Advisory Services Portfolio Metadat Range 1}, CONTAINS("Planned", @cell)), {Audit&Advisory Services Portfolio Metadat Range 2}, Symbol@row)
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

Try this. Got it to work on my end with two columns.
The AND in your formula is implied already by the IFS in COUNTIFS. COUNTIFS are multiconditional.
=COUNTIFS([plannedColumn]:PlannedColumn], (CONTAINS("Planned", @cell)), [SymbolColumn]:[SymbolColumn], [SymbolColumn]:[SymbolColumn] = "Red")
