Excel CountIf Question 2

This is similar to a question I asked before, but I need an answer that takes into effect the blank-appearing cells actually have formulas in them, for which the previous answer provided to me does not work.

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!

"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.

The formula which i provided you can use the same formula only as you have that entry their as an error but post using conditional formatting you change the font color to white.. or you can use this one..

=SUMPRODUCT(($DN$5:$EB$5<>"")*(ISTEXT($DN6:$EB6)=TRUE))
