I want to count a cell if it contains any kind of text "*"


Hi there,

I'm trying to find how I can count how many times a cell contains anything within a column. I know there's no wildcard like "*" in Smartsheet. Is there a workaround without inserting a specific text?

I'm trying to replicate the formula below from Excel into Smartsheet.

=COUNTIFS({Column X}, "Purple", {Column Z},"*")

Thanks for the help in advance!
