How to count if cells are nonblank and not equal to specific word in Excel?

In this case, you need to count the number of the cells which are nonempty and not equal to a specific word in Excel. Take instance, you have to count the number of cells which are nonempty and not equal to Yes in range A1:E9 as below screenshot shown. The general COUNTIF formula counts the cells not equal to Yes, but the counting result doesn’t exclude the blank cells. Now this tutorial introduces other tricks to quickly count the cells which both are nonblank and not equal to a specific word in Excel.
