## Count # of A's in a Cell

### Count # of A's in a Cell

Try something like this:
For text in A1
B1: =SUMPRODUCT(LEN(A1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(UPPER(A1),"A","")))

Does that help?

### Count # of A's in a Cell

### Count # of A's in a Cell

The formula I previously posted can be used to count occurrences of text in
a range.
Since you're only testing one cell, use this
B1: =LEN(A1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(UPPER(A1),"A",""))

Does that help?

### Count # of A's in a Cell

For counting a and A in your sample sentence:
Text in A1.
Cell B1: =LOWER(A1)
Cell C1: =SUBSTITUTE(B1,"a","")
Cell D1: =LEN(A1)-LEN(C1)
