# Google Sheets: How to Use COUNTIF From Another Sheet

You can use the following basic syntax to use a COUNTIF from another sheet in Google Sheets:

```=COUNTIF(Sheet1!A1:B20, ">10")
```

The following examples show how to use this syntax in practice.

### Example 1: COUNTIF From Another Sheet

Suppose we have the following sheet named Sheet1 in Google Sheets that contains some data about basketball players:

Now suppose we’d like to switch to Sheet2 and count the total players who have more than 30 points.

We can use the following syntax to do so:

`=COUNTIF(Sheet1!B2:B9, ">30")`

Here’s how to apply this formula in practice:

We can see that 2 players have more than 30 points.

### Example 2: COUNTIFS From Another Sheet

Suppose we have the following sheet that contains some data about basketball players:

Now suppose we’d like to switch to Sheet2 and count the total players who are on team A and have more than 30 points.

We can use a COUNTIFS function to do so since we’re using multiple criteria when counting:

`=COUNTIFS(Sheet1!A2:A9, "A", Sheet1!B2:B9, ">30")`

Here’s how to apply this formula in practice:

We can see that 3 players belong to team A and have more than 30 points.
