I need help with COUNTIF formula when referencing another sheet

I have a 'main' grid that contains my detail (945 rows) where each row has an employee ID, QuarterEnd, and Quarter fields. The QuarterEnd is populated with 12/31/2022 or 03/31/2023 and I'm using a nested IF statement to arrive at the Quarter to display as Q4-2022 or Q1-2023.

I'm calculating metrics in a separate sheet where I need quarter and monthly counts. For quarterly counts, I'm using =COUNTIF({EmployeeID}, {Quarter} = [Primary Column]@row), but am receiving 0 count. What am I doing wrong?
