    I'm trying to find a function that will count certain text in a coulumn but exclude others.
    For example....
    I have a column full of letters, say a-z, but when my formula counts the letter, I want it to exclude "d". Giving me a result of 25.
    Is this possible?

    Hi Regan

    Say your letters were in column A, put this formula in B1.

    =COUNTA(A:A)-COUNTIF(A:A,"D")

    hope this helps
    regards
