    Hi Dear, How to count the number of rows in merged cells by using formula and not by VBA. For Example, If range A1:A10 is merged then how to get the number of merged rows (i.e. 10) in this range by using only the formula.

    This counts the number of merged cells but if three cells are combined then it returns 1 merged cell - can it be made to count unmerged cells? If so any help appreciated!
