Excel formulas meeting 2 criteria, one based on a concatenated column

I have attached a spreadsheet with a sample range of data. Column C contains concatenated numbers from column A & B. Column D is a sign-off column. I need 2 (non-array) formulas that calculates the following:

1. # of unique 6-digit numbers in Column C where Column D is not blank, and does not contain "N/A"
2. # of unique 6-digit numbers in Column C where Column D in not blank, and contains "QRY"

There is typically about 1000 rows of data. The reason for the non-array request is that this spreadsheet will be temporarily shared (I know, not good, but beyond my control and fortunately it will be short-term!) so array formulas won't work for this situation.

Thanks!

Thanks, Phillip! Before I implement, I was wondering...is there a way to avoid using 'helper' columns in the solution?

If it were a less complicated question, then you could use COUNTIFS or an array formula, but given that you have to use FIND, I don't believe so - neither COUNTIFS or array formulas work with FIND well.
