Countif: Counting With Commas In CellsFeb 1, 2007
how do to count the number of occurrences of a text string in a range of cells, where some cell have comma delimited entries?
I am trying to count the number of times a project number is identified in a column of cells. However, in any row in that column a cell may have multiple project numbers referenced, separated by commas.
Using countif Excel thinks that the cell has a different entry and it won’t include it in the count even though the criteria string is in the cell.
