# COUNTIFS Using "OR"

Options
edited 10/24/22

Hello! I have two working formulas that counts my company's personnel based on specific criteria, but I'd like to use them in the same cell so that data is gathered if either of them are true. Here are the separate formulas:

=COUNTIFS({NST2023Role}, "Sr. Dean", {NSTStatus}, "Invited", {Area FY23}, "East")

=COUNTIFS({NST2023Role}, "Sr. Dean", {NSTStatus}, "Invited", {Manager}, "Schoch, Marcus")

Each of these formulas correctly pull the information that I want. I tried to put them together using "OR" and then I get an error message. Is there a way to have something counted if EITHER of the formulas above are true?

You could add the two together.

=COUNTIFS(.....) + COUNTIFS(.....)

=COUNTIFS({NST2023Role}, "Sr. Dean", {NSTStatus}, "Invited", {Area FY23}, "East") + COUNTIFS({NST2023Role}, "Sr. Dean", {NSTStatus}, "Invited", {Manager}, "Schoch, Marcus")
