I am trying to work with a COUNTIF but I am trying to set a range that will include future data. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to find how to exclude blank cells. Here is what I'm doing.

I want to count all instances that do not include an order status of Cancelled. Therefore I am using the following formula.


Currently I only have 10 rows of data with 3 including the word cancelled. I should have a count of 7 but I am getting a count of 196.

How do I exclude the empty rows? I do not want to need to modify the formula every time additional data is added.
