Count Blank Cells

Hi

I am using Smartsheet for invoice approvals and would like to summarise how many documents are still awaiting approval.

I have tried using a countif formula to count all cells that are blank in a certain column, however I get results that include lines are not used, e.g. there are 10 documents entered on separate lines however there are another 40 completely blank lines and I get the result of 45 blank lines (40 blank lines and 5 that aren't approved). I just want the 5 counted. 

(Those numbers are just examples, there will be more than 10 on the sheet)

Is there a workaround for this? 

Thanks,

Emma
