Excel Macro for counting values

I have a csv file which has multiple columns. The column headers are in row 1 and each column is called Scheduled or Actual.
In each column, there is a time record. I need an excel macro that will count the total number of Scheduled times and the total number of Actual times in the file. The result can be written to the end of the file as follows;
Scheduled Times: 40
Actual Times: 25

I have attached a sample file. In this file there are 40 Scheduled times and 25 Actual times.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Any particular reason you want to do this with macro as you can easily do this with formula which is..

=SUMPRODUCT((A1:G1="Scheduled")*(A2:G23<>"")) for schedule


=SUMPRODUCT((A1:G1="Scheduled")*(A2:G23<>"")) for actual..

Your workbook for reference...

Hi Saurabh, what is the vba equivalent code for this as I'm looking to use this within a macro?
Saurabh Singh TeotiaCommented:
You can simple use this code and it will do what you are looking for...

Sub chckvalues()
    Dim lrow As Long
    Dim sc As Long, ac As Long

    lrow = Cells.Find(What:="*", SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious).Row

    sc = Application.Evaluate("=SUMPRODUCT((A1:G1=""Scheduled"")*(A2:G" & lrow & "<>""""))")

    ac = Application.Evaluate("=SUMPRODUCT((A1:G1=""Actual"")*(A2:G" & lrow & "<>""""))")

    Cells(5, "m").Value = sc
    Cells(6, "m").Value = ac

End Sub
