    Hi,

    I would suggest the add in the code if the person doesn't want to select the range, and it is fixe.

    Set xCell = Range("F:F") ' range exemplo in the sheet

    And (Not xCell.Value = 0)


    The entire code will be like:


    Function COUNTVISIBLE(Rg)
    'UpdatebyKutoolsforExcel20151208
    Dim xCount As Long
    Dim xCell As Range
    Application.Volatile

    Set xCell = Range("F:F") ' range exemplo in the sheet




    For Each xCell In Rg
    If (Not xCell.EntireRow.Hidden) And (Not xCell.EntireColumn.Hidden) And (Not xCell.Value = 0) Then
    xCount = xCount + 1
    End If
    Next
    COUNTVISIBLE = xCount



    End Function
