Count.ifs to count number of 'Beds taken'

In order to count 'the numer of beds taken per day', based on arrival date and discharge date of the patient, I constructed this Count.ifs formula:



Column A = admission date

Column E = discharge date


So far, so good, this works. 

The problem is I have to analyse this for a whole year and I can't  'drag down' the formula above, since the date won't adjust automatically. So I created a column with the date in it and rewrote the formula to



Column J = the date for number of beds taken


Then the result directly turns to "0" instead of the true values I had with the other formula.


Does anyone know how I can let the date 'autoadjust' when I drag down, or how I can correctly use a Cell value as a criteria in the second value?
