In column M I need to do count of three cells in the range B2K7. The range B1K1 - numbers of columns, where 1 is number for column B, 2 - for column C, etc. The range O2Q2 - numbers of columns I need to count.
I would like to automate it in the following way: when I put numbers of columns in range O2Q2 then in column M matching column letters will be counted.
Also O2Q2 numbers could be in one cell separated by comma.
Thanks.

Excel Facts

What did Pito Salas invent?
Pito Salas, working for Lotus, popularized what would become to be pivot tables. It was released as Lotus Improv in 1989.
It will be:

SUM(IF(HLOOKUP(O$2,$B:$K,$A2+1,FALSO)<>"",1,),IF(HLOOKUP(P$2,$B:$K,$A2+1,FALSE)<>"",1,),IF(HLOOKUP(Q$2,$B:$K,$A2+1,FALSE)<>"",1,))

I could not get it working before I turned Italian "Falso" to English "False" :)
Big thanks too!
