Nice idea Michael. You could extend it to a single array formula with

=SUM(LEN(A2:A6))-SUM(LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A2:A6,1,"")))

@skr971, confirm with CTRL + Shift + Enter (NOT just Enter)

Hi Teeroy,

=SUM(LEN(A2:A6))-SUM(LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A2:A6,1,"")))

it's not working, i need sum of number 1(answer 8)

=SUM(LEN(A2:A5)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A2:A5,1,"")))

Array Formula, when ENTER you need to press CTRl-SHIFT-ENTER button together

Thanks
