Hey~

I need to count the number of times a number appears in a spreadsheet. For example, how many times the number 1 appears in an entire spreadsheet. I have the formula =COUNTIF(B6:M59,"1") but that only tells me how many times only the single digit 1 appears. I need to count how many ones total even if it appears in 11, 16, 21, 51. So in the 5 numbers listed the number 1 appears 5 times. Can someone please help me??

Thanks!

Thank you
kimipapineau, Good evening.

Try it:

MATRICIAL FORMULA
=SUM(LEN(B6:M59)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(B6:M59,1,"")))


Press SHIFT + CTRL + ENTER at final o formula

Please, tell us if it worked for you.
I hope it helps.

kimipapineau, Good morning.

Did you remember that is an array formula?
In this case you need press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to enter them into your cell.

Take a look at it and tell us if it's working now.

I hope it helps.
