COUNT function

Counts the number of arguments that contain numbers.

Syntax

COUNT(value1,value2,...)

Value1, value2, ...     are 1 to 30 arguments that can contain or refer to a variety of different types of data, but only numbers are counted.

Remarks

  • Arguments that are numbers, dates, or text representations of numbers are counted; arguments that are error values or text that cannot be translated into numbers are ignored.

  • If you need to count logical values, text, or error values, use the COUNTA function.
