Next: Count function seeing formulas as data
From: TomS on 6 Jun 2010 09:16 Sounds like maybe you need to be using COUNTIF rather than COUNT e.g. =COUNTIF(range,">value") where you substitute for range and value as needed. This works on numbers directly entered into cells as well as numbers which are the result of formulas. When I tested (Excel 2003), COUNT would also count the number of cells in which there are direct entry numbers as well as numbers which are the result of formulas.

From: Max on 6 Jun 2010 09:16 Think COUNTIF is what you're after, not COUNT Try something like this: =COUNTIF(D2:F4,">=2") which returns the number of cells within D2:F4 containing numbers greater than or equal to 2. Adapt the range and condition to suit your actuals.  Max Singapore  "robinessex" wrote: > Can you change the count function seeing formulas in cells as data.

This will count cells that contain a number greater than 100. =COUNTIF(A1:Z100,">100") Or, using a cell to hold the criteria... AB1 = 100 =COUNTIF(A1:Z100,">"&AB1)  Biff Microsoft Excel MVP "robinessex" <robinessex(a)discussions.microsoft.com> wrote in message news:11902C9613514D20B30BDCB7837023C4(a)microsoft.com... > Can you change the count function seeing formulas in cells as data.

You misunderstand the COUNT function. It only sees "formulas" as data if the formula returns a numeric value. If you could be more specific as to what you are trying to do, you might get some useful advice.

Don't use the COUNT function. =COUNTIF(your_array,">particular_value") will probably do what you want. or =COUNTIF(your_array,">"&cell_ref) where cell_ref is the address of a cell that contains the value you wish to see exceeded.
