COUNTA

COUNTA(value1 [,value2] [..])

Returns the number of numerical values in a list, table or cell range (including logical values and text).

value1The first value.
value2(Optional) The second value.

REMARKS
* This function is identical to the COUNT function except that logical values and text are included.
* This function includes hidden cells.
* Arguments that are numbers are included.
* Arguments that are zero are included.
* Arguments that are dates are included.
* Arguments that are cell references to cells containing logical values are included.
* Arguments that are arrays containing logical values are included.
* Arguments that are just logical values are included.
* Arguments that are cell references to cells containing text are included.
* Arguments that are arrays containing text are included.
* Arguments that are just text are included and counted as 1.
* If any cell references are empty, then these are excluded. (Row 7)
* If any cell references contain an error, then these are included and counted as 1.
* You can have a maximum of 255 arguments.
* You can use the COUNTAVISIBLE - User Defined Function to exclude hidden cells.
* This is similar to the AVERAGEA, MAXA and MINA functions.

1 - How many of these values are numerical.
2 - How many of these values are numerical.
3 - How many of these values are numerical. Zeros are always included.
4 - How many of these values are numerical.
5 - How many of the values in this array are numerical.
6 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1:B3".
7 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1", "B2" and "B3".
8 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B4". B4 is empty. Empty cells are always excluded.
9 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B5". B5 is zero so this gets included.
10 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B6". B6 is text so this gets excluded.
11 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B7". B7 is a logical value so this gets excluded.
12 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B8". B8 is a date so this gets included.
13 - How many cells contain numerical values in the named range that refers to the range "B1:B3".
14 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B5", "B6" and "B9". B9 contains an error so this gets excluded.
15 - How many of these values are numerical (2, "3"). The text representation of a number is included.
16 - How many of these values are numerical (2, "some text"). Text values passed as arguments are excluded.
17 - How many of the values in this array (2, "some text") are numerical. Text values inside arrays are excluded.
18 - How many of the values (2, TRUE) are numerical. Logical values passed as arguments are included.
19 - How many of the values (2, FALSE) are numerical. Logical values passed as arguments are included.
20 - How many of the values in this array (2, TRUE) are numerical. Logical values inside arrays are excluded.
