Excel COUNT Function


COUNT Function

The COUNT function is a premade function in Excel, which counts cells with numbers in a range.

It is typed =COUNT

How to use the =COUNT function:

  1. Select a cell
  2. Type =COUNT
  3. Double click the COUNT command
  4. Select a range
  5. Hit enter

Let's see some examples!

Copy Values

COUNT function, step by step:

  1. Select D23
  2. Type =COUNT
  3. Double click COUNT in the menu
  4. Select range D2:D21
  5. Hit enter

Note: The =COUNT function only counts cells with numbers in a range.

That's it! The =COUNT function successfully counted 20 cells with numbers.

Now, let us try an example that will not work.

Apply the =COUNT function to the range A2:A21, which only has cells with letters.

It returns the value 0, no cells with numbers found. Range A2:A21 only had cells with letters.
