In Excel 2007, how do I modify this formula so that the total number of question marks are printed out in a cell?

This is the formula for printing out the result of a summation of number of question marks in a range:

But in my case, I would like to print out the actual question marks (?) in the cell and not the result. So if the result is 5 question marks, then 5 question marks (?) should be printed out in the cell.

My range is AK23:AK28, the resulting question marks (? or ?? or ??? or ???? for example) should be printed out in AK16.

In other words, if Excel finds 3 ? marks in range AK23:AK28, then print out ??? in AK16.
