Count the number of all types of errors in a range


As we all known, there are several types of errors such as #DIV/0!, #REF!, #VALUE! and so on when the formulas running wrong, you can count the number of all types of errors with a simple array formula. Please do as this:

1. In a blank cell, type this formula =SUM(IF(ISERROR(A1:C10),1)), see screenshot:

doc-count-errors1

2. Then press Ctrl+Shift+Enter keys together, and you will get the number of all the error values of the range.

doc-count-errors1

Note: In the above formula, A1:C10 is the range that you want to use, you can change it as you need.


Count the number of specific types of errors in a range

Sometimes, you just want to count a specific type of errors only, for example, to find out how many #DIV/0! errors in the range. In this case, the above formula will not work, here the COUNTIF function can help you.

1. In a blank cell, please type this formula =COUNTIF(A1:C10,"#DIV/0!"), see screenshot:

doc-count-errors1

2. Then press Enter key, and the number of #DIV/0! error cells will be counted.

doc-count-errors1

Note: In the above formula, A1:C10 is the range that you want to use, and #DIV/0! is the type error that you want to count, you can replace it as your need.


Count the number of cells ignoring errors in a range

If you want to count the number of cells without errors, you can use this array formula: =SUM(IF( NOT( ISERROR(A1:C10)),1 )), and then press Ctrl+Shift+Enter keys simultaneously. And all the cells ignoring error cells will be calculated (including blank cells). See screenshots:
