Default How do I create formula to count numbers in a range of cells?

Working with a very large Excel database and must count each unit. Have
tried using =COUNT(cell range) but it does not work. I have 0 as an answer.
What am I doing wrong? All units are in one cell but they are different
(some up to 1000). I use Excel 2002.

They are probably text, try

=COUNTA(cell range)
