#### can a column for 2 different words and display a number based on how many are found

```This should be a very easy thing to do, but I can�t figure it out.

I am trying to scan a column for 2 different words and display a numbe
based on how many are found.

Example:
If the words �Completed� and �N/A� are found within a column as liste
below.  I want to create a formula that will display the number 5
because those words are found 5 times within that column.

Completed
Completed
Completed
N/A
Complete

```One way:

=COUNTIF(A:A,"Completed")+COUNTIF(A:A,"N/A")    for column A
