    Count cells that contain more than 1 word

    Hello,

    I would like a formula that gives me the number of cells in a range that contain 2 words or more.
    Preferably, I would also like to exclude from the count cells that contain a specific word/s.

    Thanks!

    If the words are separated by space then, =countif(a2:A100,"* *")
    Click the * to say thanks.

    Thanks!

    What about the second part of my question? How do I exclude (or subtract) cells that contain a specific word, for example the work "the"?

    Haven't seen the second part. I guess that it would be something like: =countifs(a2:A100,"* *",a2:A100,"<>*the*")
