Is this part of some VBA code? Can you post your code? I think what you need is:
Code:
Dim IfCounter as Integer
If value = "hi" Then
  IfCounter = IfCounter + 1
End If
Your example below doesn't say what value is attached to - i.e. what object you're testing for the string "hi"

Also, in case you're just going for straight formulas, you can use Countif.

If the column you're looking for "Hi" as the result was column A:

=countif(A1:A300,"Hi")


Hope it helps :D

Note I wouldn't use value as a variable name as it is a VBA keyword, but:

Code:
Sub test()
Dim lCounter As Long
lCounter = lCounter - (Value = "hi")
End Sub
