Counting misc object in cells


hoping someone can shed some light on this.

I want to sum a column that contains the following symbol "�". 

The following formula does not work. 

=COUNTA(C5:C35, "�"), where "�" would count for 1, and an unfilled cell
equals 0.

Help appreciated.

regards, Nik

Excel-how (find/replace) for multifmat cells w/o changing fmat
