How do I calculate times each word occurs in a column of cells?

Rather than use a complicated array formula, is there a simpler way to
determine how many times a particular word occurs in a range of cells in a
column? Thank you.

If the word only occurs once per cell (or 0 per cell):

=countif(a1:a100,"*yourword*")

If the word can occur more than once in a cell, then you'll need something else.

Here's one "something else"<g>, with word to count entered into C1:

=SUMPRODUCT(LEN(A2:A100)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(UPPER(A2:A100),UPPER(C1),"")))/LEN(C1)
