    I am trying to count the number of cells that contain text and am having difficulty as it is picking up a count where a cell contains a formula.

    Thanks for your assistance,
    John

    Do you want to count non-blank cells or cells that contain text as opposed to numbers or dates?

    Only cells that contain text ie not blank cells, numbers or dates.

    Does this do what you want?

    =SUMPRODUCT(ISTEXT(F10:F14)*(F10:F14<>""))

    Excellent - much simpler than my formula!
