In the attached spreadsheet, I have a list of 42 tabs.
I want to create a formula in column b that will tell me how many non-blank rows there are in each of the tabs
from row a5 to the end of the spreadsheet. I have been using 1000 as the highest number, but I know there
are a lot fewer than that on the largest tab.

in cell B5, try use formula:
=1000-5-COUNTA(INDIRECT("'"&A2&"'!A5:A1000"))

Open in new window

and drag down the formula.

you can customize the formula accordingly.

if you want to use CountIF function, you can try this instead.
=1000-5-COUNTIF(INDIRECT("'"&A2&"'!A5:A1000"),"<>")

Open in new window

sorry... for non-blank rows, simply try this:
=COUNTA(INDIRECT("'"&A2&"'!A5:A1000"))

Open in new window

or
=COUNTIF(INDIRECT("'"&A2&"'!A5:A1000"),"<>")

Open in new window
