It's not entirely clear what you want.  A sample file would help.

In any event, these formulae will tell you how many of "Done", "In progress", and "Completed" there are in Col B:

=COUNTIF('worksheet name'!B:B,"Done")
=COUNTIF('worksheet name'!B:B,"In progress")
=COUNTIF('worksheet name'!B:B,"Completed")

You could also use a PivotTable, perhaps coupled with the techniques outlined here for automatically refreshing your PivotTable as your source data change:

Just add 'em up...
=COUNTIF('worksheet name'!B:B,"COMPLETED")+COUNTIF('worksheet name'!B:B,"INPROGRESS")
