I want to identify the number of iterations of more than one value (e.g, 47 and 54 in more than one range (four ranges).

Here is my cumbersome function as it now stands:
=COUNTIF($I$3:$K$38, 47)+COUNTIF($T$3:$V$32, 47)+COUNTIF($AC$3:$AE$42, 47)+COUNTIF($AK$3:$AM$42, 47)+COUNTIF($I$3:$K$38, 54)+COUNTIF($T$3:$V$32, 54)+COUNTIF($AC$3:$AE$42, 54)+COUNTIF($AK$3:$AM$42, 54)

Can I nest the arguments to downsize the function? Thanks

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.
I know this is not the best solution, but it will reduce the size of your formula.

=SUM(COUNTIF($I$3:$K$38,A1:A2)+COUNTIF($T$3:$V$32,A1:A2)+COUNTIF($AC$3:$AE$42,A1:A2)+COUNTIF($AK$3:$AM$42,A1:A2))

Enter this as an array formula using CTRL-SHIFT-Enter and make sure that A1:A2 has 47 and 54 entered in it. I have used A1:A2 as an example only, use any cells you want.

Thanks for the reply, Seti.

Problem is that the values 47 or 54 may appear randomly in any cell within any of the four ranges. In essence, I am trying to monitor its appearance.

You could name the ranges (see Dynamic ranges and offset)

=SUMPRODUCT((Ir={47,54})+(Jr={47,54})+(Kr={47,54})) etc.

Column I named Ir etc.
