#### how to count#cells w/= value in other column and not count blank c

```In column A, I have values equal to either YES, NO or NA.  In column B, I
have values equal to either YES, NO or NA.  I want to count the # of cells in
column B that equal to their counterpart in column A, but I do not want to
count blank cells, ex:
A	B
1	Yes	Yes
2	No	No
3	NA	No
4
5	Yes	Yes
6	Yes	Yes
7
8	No	No
9	No	No
Result for B10 should be 6 as I do not want to count row 4 and row 7

```

Or do they only "float" on the page. Marc They float over the worksheet, but you can adjust the size so that it seems to fit a cell exactly.
