Join Dennis Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Using COUNT, COUNTA, and the status bar, part of Excel 2011 for the Mac: Advanced Formulas and Functions.

At other times it might be valuable to know…how many cells actually have data.…We see at least two more cells here that have data.…And since the list is relatively short…I'll zip through it kind of quickly here,…so about a hundred entries.…There are two additional cells that have data…in addition to numbers.…So the function called Count A,…when applied to that same column D,…is going to give us a different answer.…94 of the cells actually have data.…Now at the bottom of the screen,…in the status bar,…
