Count If Formula with a Defined Range

How would you write a countif formula using a defined name range?

My range: =AFME!$G$18:$G$19,AFME!$G$25,AFME!$G$43,AFME!$G$45,AFME!$G$46:$G$48,AFME!$G$50:$G$51,AFME!$G$54:$G$58,AFME!$G$60,AFME!$G$62:$G$64,AFME!$G$66,AFME!$G$68:$G$72,AFME!$G$76:$G$77,AFME!$G$75:$G$77,AFME!$G$78,AFME!$G$81:$G$84,AFME!$G$144:$G$146,AFME!$G$149,AFME!$G$149,AFME!$G$150,AFME!$G$183:$G$184,AFME!$G$186,AFME!$G$193:$G$194,AFME!$G$198,AFME!$G$200:$G$201,AFME!$G$255:$G$257,AFME!$G$269:$G$270,AFME!$G$272,AFME!$G$274,AFME!$G$276,AFME!$G$278,AFME!$G$280,AFME!$G$285,AFME!$G$298:$G$299,AFME!$G$301,AFME!$G$303,AFME!$G$305,AFME!$G$307,AFME!$G$310,AFME!$G$312,AFME!$G$318,AFME!$G$320,AFME!$G$322,AFME!$G$324,AFME!$G$326,AFME!$G$328,AFME!$G$331,AFME!$G$334,AFME!$G$335,AFME!$G$336,AFME!$G$340:$G$341,AFME!$G$351,AFME!$G$353:$G$359,AFME!$G$366:$G$368,AFME!$G$375:$G$382,AFME!$G$384:$G$387,AFME!$G$413:$G$414,AFME!$G$451,AFME!$G$453,AFME!$G$457,AFME!$G$458,AFME!$G$462,AFME!$G$464:$G$465,AFME!$G$468:$G$472,AFME!$G$475,AFME!$G$479,AFME!$G$511,AFME!$G$518,AFME!$G$526,AFME!$G$534:$G$535,AFME!$G$537,AFME!$G$555,AFME!$G$561,AFME!$G$565,AFME!$G$569,AFME!$G$572,AFME!$G$575:$G$581,AFME!$G$585,AFME!$G$589,AFME!$G$593,AFME!$G$596,AFME!$G$599:$G$606,AFME!$G$608:$G$610,AFME!$G$612:$G$617,AFME!$G$1118,AFME!$G$1134,AFME!$G$1153,AFME!$G$1158,AFME!$G$1182:$G$1183,AFME!$G$1214,AFME!$G$1218,AFME!$G$1232:$G$1234,AFME!$G$1236:$G$1242,AFME!$G$1247,AFME!$G$1251:$G$1255,AFME!$G$1257,AFME!$G$1260,AFME!$G$1262,AFME!$G$1266:$G$1269,AFME!$G$1271,AFME!$G$1273:$G$1275,AFME!$G$1278:$G$1281,AFME!$G$1283:$G$1285,AFME!$G$1296:$G$1297,AFME!$G$1306,AFME!$G$1315:$G$1316,AFME!$G$1322,AFME!$G$1334,AFME!$G$1336:$G$1337

That's why its defined to just = YG

I wrote this formula and it doesn't work:

=COUNTIF(YG,"Satisfactory")

Help? Thanks!

I tested the same thing and it seems to work fine. I used a much smaller range though.

does the capitalization and punctuation match the cells?

Are you receiving an error?

Okay, so for example it works fine if I use a small range of g2:g4 connected, its when I start using the defined range with g2:g4, g8, g9:g11.. it doesn't work. But, that's the reason I'm trying to use a defined range because I'm pulling for 100's of cells that aren't connected unfortunately.

You need to define "it doesn't work" more specifically.

Is this the cause?

G149 is also listed twice. Double check there's no over laps

Also notice a space in 585, 1134,1275, ad 1334

I just tested using ranges split up. I got a #Value error. I looked up similar situations and CountIF is not allowed across split ranges. Can you do just all of columnG?

I believe that's the case and was afraid of that with the split ranges. I will do those few edits where no dups or spaces to see if it fixes, but all in all I think its because of that darn rule with countif's. I originally started with column G counts until they told me they only want to count rows that are green or yellow highlighted with the satisfactory, needs improvement, etc. Do you know of a work around that I can use a count if formula with colors and "satisfactory"?
