This thing is making me wanting to do stuff I could never quote on a public forum!!!

OK what I want to do is the following.

In A1 I got 1C/3C/9C/10C
In A2 I got 1C
In A3 I got 1C/10C/11C

I want Excel to count the number of Cs within the cell.

Result would be

A1: 4
A2: 1
A3: 3

Any ideas, please??? Can't be that hard... :oops:
