COUNT(value1 [,value2] [..]) 
Returns the number of non blank cells in a list, table or cell range. 
value1  The first value. 
value2  (Optional) The second value. 
Remarks 
* This function includes hidden cells. * For an illustrated example refer to the page under Advanced Functions * Arguments that are numbers are included. * Arguments that are zero are included. * Arguments that are dates are included. * Arguments that are logical values are excluded. * Arguments that are text are excluded. * If any cell references are empty, then these are excluded. (Row 5). * If any cell references contain an error, then that error is returned. * You can have a maximum of 255 arguments. * You can use this function to get the number of entries in a number field in a range (or array) of numbers. * You can use the COUNTA function to include logical values and text. * You can use the COUNTBLANK function to return the number of blank cells. * You can use the COUNTIFS function to satisfy multiple conditions. * You can use the COUNTVISIBLE  User Defined Function to exclude hidden cells. * You can use the AGGREGATE function to exclude hidden cells. * This is similar to the AVERAGE function. * This is similar to the MAX function. * This is similar to the MIN function. * This is similar to the SUM function. * For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.microsoft.com
