Automatic counting of text chars in an Excel worksheet matrix

Can someone show me how to use an Excel Pivot table or otherwise to count the total number of each character that appears in the attached matrix.

I used to do this all the time for reports, but have forgotten how to do it by column and then display grand total for each.  I'm using Office 2013 and 2003.


Thanks

You can use COUNTIF. To find all A's it would be:

=COUNTIF(A1:J14,"A")

Or you can enter all the characters in 1 column. Say L1 was "A", you would use:

=COUNTIF(A1:J14,L1)

You could then copy and paste all the way down.

The following worked better for me.
