    COUNT function for visible filtered rows that contact text

    Hi,

    I've searched the forum but can only find solutions for summing numbers. I wish to count the number of rows in a column that return anything in a cell (including text) when I use the filter function. Basically, like a COUNTA but only for visible filtered rows. Can anyone assist?

    Thanks

    I think you are referring to the =subtotal(103,XX:XX) function?

    Fantastic, thank you! Out of interest, how can I found out what the function_num should be (103 in this case)?

    see the XL Help Files re: SUBTOTAL Function (the 100+ function_nums were added in XL2003)

    Does this formula only works if the other boxes are blank?
