Hide columns with no count

I have a worksheet that I would like to hide all columns that have a zero count since some cells contain numerical data and some contain text. All columns have a header, so those should be excluded in the count. I read this link Macro to Hide Columns with ZERO value - Mr. Excel but I think it's not doing what I would like because changing the count to countA includes the header row, and every column has header text. Thank you.

I think I have it now.

VBA Code:
Option Explicit

Sub HideMT()
    Dim lr As Long, lc As Long
    Dim i As Long
    lc = Cells(1, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
    For i = 1 To lc
        lr = Cells(Rows.Count, i).End(xlUp).Row
        If WorksheetFunction.CountA(Range(Cells(2, i), Cells(lr + 1, i))) = 0 Then
            Cells(1, i).EntireColumn.Hidden = True
        End If
        
    Next i
End Sub

        End If
       
    Next i
End Sub
That appears to have done it! Thank you very much. Not sure how to convey how many columns it hid, but it sure was a lot. Being able to use that code moving forward is a huge time saver and a lot easier on the eyes. Thank you again.
