    How to COUNT numbers of items?

    I have used function to track numbers of NOT EMPTY FILEDS.

    How to count this with this function as I have sample string of random numbers like:
    09-400-000004

    Numbers will be added on the right.

    It shows me still value 0 although I have NOT EMPTY value like: 09-400-000004

    09-400-000004 is not a value as far as excel is concerned, rather it is some text.

    try using COUNTA instead of COUNT

    Is this COUNT of text or STRING of numbers, text...

    =counta(1:1) counts the number of cells in a range that are not empty.

    Beware however that COUNTA counts Nulls as non-blank... if your values are the result of formulae and are always text you may find using COUNTIF(A:A,"*?") safer method.

    What will do COUNTIF(A:A,"*?") in steps?
