Excel CountIf function

What formula (no array, please) can I enter in column S to simply count the number of shifts each employee (LL, ME, RC, etc.) have for the week in the attached spreadsheet? I'm having an issue with the text-style entry of the hours not computing in the formulas I've tried. Thanks in advance!

I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

I do not see the attachment ... did you zip it?

The syntax for CountIf is:
=CountIf(range, criteria)

range contains the text you are counting
criteria is a reference to the cell with criteria, or the value of the criteria

There is a similar function called CountIfs where you can specify multiple criteria
