I am trying to use a countif statement on a row, but not include a few cells that are in a row. I was trying to do something like this: COUNTIF(A1:D1,G1:J1,"x") I want it to search A1 through D1 and G1 through J1 and return the number of cells containg an 'x', but the commas seperating thr 2 ranges in the formula throw off the COUNTIF formula. Any idea how to search multiple ranges?

Maybe
Code:
=COUNTIF(A1:D1."x")+COUNTIF(G1:J1,"x")
