I wish to setup a mechanism to count the number of x's in a series of cells but only if another cell does not have an x in it.

So, for example;

If Cell A1 has an x (or whatever) in it, then it will not count the number of x's in the cells B1 thru B10.

If Cell A1 does not have an x (or whatever) in it, then it will count the number of x's in the cells B1 thru B10.

Thanks

Richard

Try using an IF function like this

=IF(A1="x","",COUNTIF(B1:B10,"x"))

That returns a blank [""] if A1 has an "x", otherwise the count of "x"s in B1:B10, is that what you need?
