To change my spreadsheet,goto H1 change how many rows to look at then copy and paste across and also down.
I would like for G1 to be where I add my number of rows to look at. So I put a number there and it changes my sheet automatically.

Am I suppose to enter the formula with CTR, SHIFT, ENTER? because when I enter the formula in H1 and copy it across, it's ok. But when I copy it to H3 down and across it says"The formula in this cell refer to a range that has additional numbers adjacent to it."

No need for CSE entry, it's a normal formula.
As for the warning message, you would have got that with your formula as well.

Just to check, are you looking to limit the countif to only a few selected rows of data?
For instance only looking at 10 rows out of the 250?

In that case the formula I provided should be ok.
