I realize this is probably very simple to do but I can't seem to figure it out. I have one column of information which contains numbers from 1 to 19. I just want to write a formula that counts how many times the number 1 or 2 or 3 is listed in this column. Example Column B2:B49 how many times is the number 3 listed. I've tried to use the count feature and it is not returning the right info. Help! Thanks

Thank you very much Albert. I was leaving off the quotation marks in my formula. Thanks again for the fast reply. Byron

You might also try this to substitute the end of the formular toilook at spectic cell that you might find easier to change if you had a series of items to look up...(F1 being the cell to modify)

=COUNTIF(B2:B49,F1)
