# Find similar words in column A, report quantity in column B

1. ## Find similar words in column A, report quantity in column B

Hello everyone,

I need to know if there is a way to do this:

I have 2 columns, A & B

I need a formula that can find Similar names in Column A. For example, there are 600 entries in Column A (all different company names). Now i need a formula that can search through all these names and find cells that have the word VISA in it and report the quantity number to a cell in column B. So if there are 75 entries for the company VISA then report 75 in a cell in column B.

Cheers

=COUNTIF(A1:A600,"*visa*")
