The Excel function used to count the number of cells in a range that meet a specific condition is the COUNTIF function. COUNTIF allows you to specify a range of cells and a condition, and it counts the number of cells within that range that meet the specified condition. The basic syntax of the COUNTIF function is as follows:
- “range” is the range of cells you want to count.
- “criteria” is the condition that cells in the range must meet in order to be counted.
For example, if you want to count the number of cells in the range A1:A10 that contain the value “Apples,” you would use the following formula:
This formula will return the count of cells in the range A1:A10 that contain the text “Apples.”
