    how to replace in formula value with a value that is in particular cell

    Hello,
    I have very simple question. Lets imagine that I have the following formula:

    =COUNTIF('sheet1'!$G$3:G6000,"good")


    I would like to change that formula so it counts not "good" but the value which is in cell A1. So if in cell A1 it is written "good" to look for "good". If I replace content of cell A1 with "bad" to count "bad".
    Thanks a lot!!!

    Do you mean?

    =COUNTIF('sheet1'!$G$3:G6000,a1)

    And one last question:
    if by mistake in the file we have space (" ") after the value "good " I I can transform the formula so the space is ignored?
