I want to only count if the word "Off" is in 7 specific columns.  They happen to be 21 columns apart, not sure that matters.  There are other columns with the word "Off" but don't want to count them.
Gotta be a way.
Help is appreciated.

Countif can work only with continuous range. You can sum 7 countifs if you like to get results from non-continuous range:
=COUNTIF(A:A,"Off")+ COUNTIF(C:C,"Off")+ COUNTIF(E:E,"Off")+ COUNTIF(I:I,"Off")+ COUNTIF(J:J,"Off")+ COUNTIF(K:K,"Off")+ COUNTIF(M:M,"Off")
