Counting formulas referring to a range containing formulas

Excel Facts

Why are there 1,048,576 rows in Excel?
The Excel team increased the size of the grid in 2007. There are 2^20 rows and 2^14 columns for a total of 17 billion cells.
Countblank will count "" as blank, CountA will not. That's all I can think of since:

If you're trying to exclude "" and true blanks from your count:


Excel 2010
ABCDEF
2thethe1book1
3  my
4  mine
5  your
6aa1library5
7aa2pen6
8anan1apple7
9  Germany
10  England
11thethe2librarian10

Cell Formulas
RangeFormula
A3=""
A4=""
A5=""
A9=""
A10=""
B3=""
B4=""
B5=""
B9=""
B10=""
F13=SUMPRODUCT(--(LEN(A2:D13)<>0))
F14=SUMPRODUCT(--(LEN(A2:D13)=0))


is another way

If you're trying to exclude "" and true blanks from your count:

[...]

F13=SUMPRODUCT(--(LEN(A2:D13)<>0))
F14=SUMPRODUCT(--(LEN(A2:D13)=0))

<tbody>
</tbody>

is another way

=COUNTIFS(A2:D13,"?*")

=COUNTIFS(A2:D13,"")

would be tad faster in this type of text situations.
