Access - count non-empty cells across a row

I have a spreadsheet with the following in columns:

A - Name
B - Test 1
C - Test 2
D - Test 3
E - Test 4

Is there a way to create Column F to be the count of how many tests have been completed for that particular person.

A person may have completed any none, or any combination of the 4 tests. For example, if John Doe has completed Test 1 and Test 3, his count would be 2. If Jane Doe has completed Test 2 - 4, her count would be 3. If A. Williams has completed no tests, his count would be zero.

Thank you

what are the values under columns test 1 - 4?
do you want to do this in excel or access?
Rey Obrero (Capricorn1)Commented:
if the values for test taken is "Y",
in the Excel workbook, you can place this formula in Column F, row 2


and should get the counts.

or use "counta" to count non empty cells
