Count Names NOT #N/A

I have a list of names (column A) which ends in a bunch of #N/As (because
they include formulas that are... well... N/A) and I'd like to count the
names, not the "#N/A"s. Can someon help me out with a formula please?

I'm thinking it should be something like:

=COUNTIF(A1:A16, NOT "#N/A")

But that doesn't work!

In English that would be, Please count all the names and disregard the cells
with #N/A in them. How many people is that?

Hi Dax,

To count the names in column A and exclude the #N/A errors, you can use the COUNTIF function with the "<" operator. Here's the formula you can use:
1. =COUNTIF(A1:A16,"<"&"#N/A")

This formula will count all the cells in the range A1:A16 that are not equal to "#N/A". The "&" symbol is used to concatenate the "<" operator with the "#N/A" text.

If you have any macro or Visual Basic code, wrap it in the
Formula:
``` and [b][/b]  ```
tags.

Thank you.

Maybe...

=COUNTIF(A1:A16,"<#n/a")

Maybe this:

=COUNTIF(A1:A16,"*")

That will count all the *text* entries in the range and exclude the #N/As
