Which version of excel?
If it is the latest, you can achieve this by typing this formula:
=COUNTBLANK(C2:C27)
You can count the nonblank values by typing:
=COUNTA(C2:C27)

for 2003 you can use

=ROWS(C2:C27)-COUNTA(C2:C27)

if you know the number of rows involved then this does it:

Count if blank simple
=24-COUNT(C2:C25)


edit: actually, the comment above with =counta() is better
