Assuming the strings are in the range A1:A5, then try this.....

=SUMPRODUCT(--(EXACT(LEFT(A1:A5,1),UPPER(LEFT(A1:A5,1)))))

I think I misunderstood your question, I assumed you were trying to compare the first character of the words.

Please try this tweaked formula....

=SUMPRODUCT(--(EXACT((A1:A5),UPPER(A1:A5))))

And moreover if you want to ignore the numeric values and assuming the data is in the range A1:A6, please try this......

=SUMPRODUCT((ISTEXT(A1:A6))*(EXACT((A1:A6),UPPER(A1:A6))))
