I am wanting to count the number of personnel within a defined name. I have tried using =COUNTIF(A1:A5,_OFF) "_OFF" is the defined name having various titles in them. The overall outcome of the formula I am needing help with is to show there are 4 doctors of the entire range using the _OFF defined name. For example:

Name (Name is irrelevant)Title
Doe, JohnMr.
Doe, JohnPhD
Doe, JohnMD
Doe, JohnDO
Doe, JohnPhD

<tbody>
</tbody>

Defined Name: "_OFF"
PhD
MD
DO

<tbody>
</tbody>
 

Excel Facts

Remove leading & trailing spaces
Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().
