I am looking for a formula to count the number of incoming requests for a specific month.

Using a column name CR Number (this is auto generated no column type) and a Date column which shows the Date(09/08/2022). I would like see how many requests came in the month of August2022.

COUNTIFS is the function you're looking for. This will work as long as your Date column is date-type column.

=COUNTIFS(Date:Date, MONTH(@cell) = 8, Date:Date, YEAR(@cell) = 2022)

In English - Count all the rows with Date values where the month equals 8 and the year equal 2022.

Using "@cell" with the MONTH and YEAR functions inside your COUNTIFS tells the system to perform the MONTH function and the YEAR function on each value before it decides whether or not to count the row.
