Excel Facts

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Welcome to MrExcel - do you mean something like count all instances in a column of "ABC"?

=COUNTIF(A:A,"ABC")

If you want to sum one column based on another, then

=SUMIF(A:A,"ABC",B:B)

Where column A holds your Text, and if applicable column B holds vlues to sum.
