# Smartsheet function is UNPARSEABLE

On the Sheet Summary I'm trying to write a function that will track Past Due tasks below is the format :

```=COUNTIF([Is Past Due?]:[Is Past Due?], "Yes")
```

The formula doesn't work as it says "UNPARSEABLE". Below is the Past Due column name

Hi Bernanrd, try below formula

=COUNTIFS([Past Due]1:[Past Due]25, <TODAY())

We can add multiple conditions like Due in the next 7 days or 3 days. Let me know if this helps.

I hope you're well and safe!

What is the column name? I can't see the Column Name referenced in the formula.

I assume this is what you're after.

```=COUNTIF([Past Due]:[Past Due], <TODAY())
```

I hope that helps!

Be safe and have a fantastic week!
