I have been asked to provide some stats on the number of live and outstanding jobs that are due.

The due dates for each job is the last day of each month (30/06/18, 31/07/18, 31/08/18 and so on).


I would like to get a count of the number of jobs that are still outstanding from each previous month and i am not sure how to do this.




One way to do this would be to create a summary sheet. In the Primary Column, you would put the date that applies (e.g. 30/06/18). Then use a COUNTIFS formula that is something like:

=COUNTIFS([Reference Sheet Date],[Date],[Reference Sheet Status],<>"Complete")

or something along these lines. The references are really generic in this sample.
