I am trying to use a CountIf statement where the range in which I am counting consists of cells that are not adjacent. I could do this with a named range, but this is in a case where I want to be able to copy the formala to a bunch of different cells without having to create many named ranges ......... any help would be appreciated.

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

=SUMPRODUCT(--(MOD(COLUMN(A1:G1)-COLUMN(A1)+0,2)=0),--(A1:G1="Pass"))
