EXCEL 2007

=+COUNTA(M1:M20)

- the above will count non blank cells for the specified range.

If my comments have helped please hit Yes.

Thanks.

Do you mean count, not sum? Do you mean count all cells even if they
contain text; or do you mean count the cells that contain text, excluding
those that are numeric?

To count all non-empty cells:

=counta(A1:A100)

To count cells that contain text, exlcuding those that are numeric:

=sumproduct(--istext(A1:A100))

To sum cells, regardless of whether they are numeric or they contain numeric
strings as text:

=sumproduct(--A1:A100)
