    How do I count cells that are shaded, i.e., yellow fill.

    Go through them one at a time and put an | down for every shade cell. Then every multiple of 5 put a bar across like this ||||. This makes it easier to count the total. (Sorry it's lunchtime, I get sarky at lunchtime)

    Seriously, how do you want to do this? Do you want to use VBA? I don't know how you'd do it otherwise.

    Try this:

    Sub yellow_count()
    lastcell = Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Address
    firstcell = "A1"
    Range(firstcell & ":" & lastcell).Select
    For Each cell In Selection
    If cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 6 Then x = x + 1
    Next
    MsgBox x & " cells are yellow"
    End Sub

    It's never too late to learn something new.

    Thanks for the VBA.
    I guess the other method will work as well
