Combining COUNTIF AND IF ?
I'm trying to return a value that represents a number from 07.
The numbers represent a step number that has been completed based on how many status cells say "Complete".
So if the first step is "Complete", I need a 0 returned. If the first two steps are complete, then I need a 1 returned etc. (I have to use 0 as the first step unfortunately).
My formula works unless no steps are complete in which case it returns a 1. I'd like for the formula to return something like "NS" ("Not started") of no steps are complete.
=SUM(COUNTIF(Status2, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status6, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status14, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status20, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status22, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status27, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status31, "Complete")  1)
I'm thinking I could incorporate an IF statement somewhere that returns "NS" of no steps are completed.

Try this:
=IF( SUM(COUNTIF(Status2, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status6, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status14, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status20, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status22, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status27, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status31, "Complete")  1) < 0, "Not Started", SUM(COUNTIF(Status2, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status6, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status14, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status20, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status22, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status27, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status31, "Complete")  1) )

Try this:
=IF( SUM(COUNTIF(Status2, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status6, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status14, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status20, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status22, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status27, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status31, "Complete")  1) < 0, "Not Started", SUM(COUNTIF(Status2, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status6, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status14, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status20, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status22, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status27, "Complete"), COUNTIF(Status31, "Complete")  1) )

Thank you that worked!
