=countif(<cell range>,"<>''")

Edit for clarity, the second part with a space between each character: , " < > ' ' " ), i.e. quote, less than, greater than, apostrophe, apostrophe, quote.

This formula will count anything entered in the cell range, even if it's not the correct data type. However you can customize this formula if you want more conditions. If that isn't what you are looking for, please provide a sample of data and the value you are expecting.

Pleased to help. COUNTA has the advantage of allowing several non-contiguous ranges to be added.
