You guys are the best. I need to find the number of text values in a range of cells that contain a certain text string. To be specific, some of the text strings may contain the string "32" with no quotes, as in pos32.exe, and I need a count of those. Many thanks...

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December

You could include a column with this formula and then copy it down and add them:

=IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("32",A18)),0,1)

You can also use "find" instead of "search" if you need it case sensitive.
