more than 1 word and some sentences.

I am using Excel 2003. How do I count rows/column with only text in it. Ex: I have 25 rows where column "B" says "PO Received" in each cell. I tried @count(B1-B24), but I only came up with "0" as an answer. What am I doing wrong? Can anyone help me with this, please??? Aurora In Excel formulas are started with an equal = sign.

Count only 315 and higher? Count shaded cells?
Hi there, I wonder if some kind soul can help me on these two issues please? I am currently using the formula =COUNT(P2:P21) to count the number of entries in a column.

Counting an entry to a cell
Using Excel 2007 I would like to get a formula that will allow me to count entries in column C, but if an entry is made in column D that would supersede what is in column C.

Count Rows When Using Auto-Filter
Using the auto-filter function I need to count the number of rows returned each time I select a new value. I can do a COUNTA (&#8211;1 to allow for the header row), on the column that counts all the rows but when I use the filter I still get the total count not a count of the reduced quantity by the filter.

Missing Fonts in Word Art
When I open up a Pub 2003 document on a computer that did not create the document, the fonts that are missing on the current computer are listed as the document is opened. These missing fonts are only those used in text boxes, not the fonts used in word art. The word art just defaults to an arial font. When I open the "edit text" menu in word art, the font box is blank. Do I have a setting wrong or is this just how it is with Publisher 2003?
