Suppose your data is in Column A then paste this formula anywhere or in A12 and Press Ctr+Shift+Enter as this is any Array formula ....... After pressing Ctr+Shift+Enter to enter the formula you will see {} will occur around the formula ={SUM(IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("*a*",A1:A10,1)),0,1))} ... never try to enter {} manually ....
Array Formula : After entering the formula Press Ctrl+Shift+Enter

=SUM(IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("*a*",A1:A10,1)),0,1))
The array formula works, but it takes too much computer power to calculate and will make the workbook larger in size. Use the COUNTIF formula with the conjunction of the wild card ("*").
IF CELL B1, contains the following values: a, b, c, d, e, f, g
and cell B2, contains the following values: a, b, c, d, e, f, g
You want to know how many times the value "a" shows up in column B across all the cells. The formula to use would be:
=COUNTIF($B:$B,"*"&"a"&"*")
the formula should return quantity of 2, since a is showes up in cell B1 and B2.

Mr Excel: Like this
=COUNTIF($B:$B,"*"&A10 &"*")
=COUNTIF($B:$B,"*"&A10 &"*")

Hi, if I have a column of values from an open question on a survey, how can I see:
 what words were said
 how many times each word were said
For instance, a participant may say that they like a TV because it is: cool, smart, useful.
