    or if the zz is anywhere in the text:
    =COUNTIF(A1:A11,"*zz*")

    hi bharathsd, welcome to the forum. try this array formula:
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    ...confirmed by pressing CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER to activate the array. You will know the array is active when you see curly braces { } appear around your formula. If you do not CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER you will get an error or a clearly incorrect answer. Press F2 on that cell and try again.

    Thanks, if you have clicked on the * and added our rep.
