You can use the following basic syntax to use a **COUNTIF** from another sheet in Excel:

**=COUNTIF(Sheet1!A1:B20, ">30")
**

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 Excel 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.
