    Hallo , I hope someone can help - I thoguht i could figure this one out myself but can't get it.

    I have a column with about 30 rows to it.
    In some of the rows i have placed an x in the row.
    I need a formula to do a count of all the rows where there is an "x"
    I thought of sum(subsitute((b1..b30),"x",1)) but it doesn't seem to work

    Thanks

    =COUNTIF(B1:B30,"X")

    will suffice.
