## How to count if cells contain any date/data in Excel?

Have you even met problems to count number of cells containing any date or data in a specific range in Excel? In this article, I will introduce ways to count if cells contain any date/data in Excel.

#### Count if cells contain any date in Excel

Step 1: Open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window with pressing the Alt + F11 keys at the same time.

Step 2: Click the Insert > Module, and then paste the following VBA code into the Module window:

VBA: Count if cells contain any date

Function TypeCell(pRange As Range) As Variant

``````Dim xArr() As Variant
Dim xRng As Range
Application.Volatile
ReDim xArr(pRange.Cells.Count - 1) As Variant
xCount = 0
For Each xRng In pRange
xArr(xCount) = VarType(xRng)
xCount = xCount + 1
Next
TypeCell = xArr
End Function``````

Step 3: In a blank cell enter the formula =SUM(IF(TypeCell(A1:E15)=7,1,0)), and then press the Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys in a meantime.

Note: In the formula of =SUM(IF(TypeCell(A1:E15)=7,1,0)), the A1:E15 is the specific range we will count number of cells containing dates, you can change it based on your needs.
