    word count within specific cells

    Good morning!

    I was hoping some one could help me find a formula that will allow me to calculate how many times a certain word comes up within certain cells.

    I'm not sure but maybe COUNTIF? COUNTIF(V:V, 'awesome')??? not really the expert here. Please help!

    If the word can happen more than once per cell, here's a formula that will get the proper count:

    Note that Sumproduct is much less efficient than Countif, so it's best to limit the range instead of using the whole column.
