Help Needed With Count


T

trvlnmny

I want to count the number of times a specific character appears in a
range of cells.
Lets say B4:C25.
The character can be an alpha, number or a symbol.
The character may or may not be in the cells.
If the character is present in a cell it may or may not be the only
character in the cell.
If the character is present in a cell, with other characters, it may
be positioned anywhere in the cell.
In English what I want is a count of the number of cells that contain
the & character in the range of cell B4 to C25.

Spencer,
Thanks for your reply.
Yes the character may appear more than once in a cell.
