Counting # of rows under a parent row that meets a certain criteria
Hi!
I am trying to figure out what formula to use in the below situation:
My sheet has parent rows that determine various phases of a project. Each child row has a status (in progress, complete, etc.) for each step (step 1, step 2, etc.). I am trying to figure out what formula would count how many "in progress" child rows I have under one particular parent row (i.e.) How many steps are completed in phase one  see picture). Thank you!!

See below:
=COUNTIFS(CHILDREN(Step@row), @cell <> "", CHILDREN(Status@row), @cell = "In progress")

Thank you for this. Unfortunately, it is only counting the two cells being referenced and not all the cells in the children row that meets the criteria. I don't understand the syntax of this formula, so I am not entirely sure where the problem may lie. Can you explain why you have used each piece of this formula so I may be able to adapt it to what I need?

Where did you put the formula?
