Count how many times a word appears in a range of cells

I am trying to use a cross sheet formula to count how many times specific words in a range of cells. I keep getting a 0 and not sure why. Any direction will be greatly appreciated. Below is the formula I used.

=COUNTIF({Touch Log - Detail Range 2}, FIND("Call", Submitter@row) > 0)

I hope that the screenshots help.



  • Billy,

    I'll take a shot and see if it works for you:

    This would look for "Call" in the specific row and give you a value.

    =COUNTIFS([Touch Type]@row, FIND("Call", @cell) > 0)

    If you wanted to do it for the range, it would be something like:

    =COUNTIFS([Touch Type]1:[Touch Type]3, FIND("Call", @cell) > 0)

    Also the "Call" after FIND is case sensitive.

    Hope that helps!
