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, text and errors are included.
* This function includes hidden cells.
* This function excludes empty cells but includes everything else. See Example 8.
* Arguments that are just text are included. See Example 18.
* Arguments that are references to cells containing logical values are included. See Example 11.
* Arguments that are references to cells containing text are included. See Example 10.
* Arguments that are references to cells containing error values are included. See Example 14.
* Arguments that are arrays containing logical values are included. See Example 20.
* Arguments that are arrays containing text are included. See Example 19.
* You can have a maximum of 255 arguments.
* You can use the COUNTIFS function to return the number of non blank cells that satisfies multiple conditions.
* You can use the COUNTBLANK function to return the number of blank cells.
* 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 (1,2,3).
2 - How many of these values are numerical (1,2,3,0). Zeros are always included.
3 - How many of these values are numerical (-2,-3,4,5,6).
4 - How many of the values are numerical in this array {-2,-3,4,5,6}.
5 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1:B3".
6 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1", "B2" and "B3".
7 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B4". B4 is empty so this gets excluded.
8 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B5". B5 is zero so this gets included.
9 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B6". B6 is text so this gets included.
10 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B7". B7 is a logical value so this gets included. TRUE is replaced with 1.
11 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B8". B8 is a logical value so this gets included. FALSE is replaced with 0.
12 - How many cells contain numerical values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B9". B9 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 "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B10". B10 contains an error so this gets included.
15 - How many of the values (2, "3") are numerical. Text values that are actually numbers are included.
16 - How many of the values (2, TRUE) are numerical. Logical values passed as arguments are included. TRUE is replaced with 1.
17 - How many of the values (2, FALSE) are numerical. Logical values passed as arguments are included. FALSE is replaced with 0.
18 - How many of the values (2, "some text") are numerical. Text values passed as arguments are included.
19 - How many of the values are numerical in the array {2, "some text"}. Text values inside arrays are included.
20 - How many of the values are numerical in the array {2, TRUE}. Logical values inside arrays are included.
