I've been trying to use the COUNTIF function to extract the number of occurrences of a particular word CONTAINED in a bunch of cells by referencing an outside cell. It works fine if I enter the search parameters manually like this: =COUNTIF(B2:B443,"*wabigoon*") but instead of entering 'Wabigoon' or something else, I want to reference a cell that contains the word Wabigoon or whatever other word I wish to search. Any thoughts?

hello I have a countif formula for multiple cells but do not want to manually type in each cell number is there any way to get them to auto populate for example =COUNTIF('15Nov'!\$C\$4:\$C\$4,"x")+COUNTIF('15Nov'!\$C\$4:\$C\$4,"x") =COUNTIF('15Nov'!\$C\$5:\$C\$5,"x")+COUNTIF('15Nov'!\$C\$5:\$C\$5,"x") =COUNTIF('15Nov'!\$C\$6:\$C\$6,"x")+COUNTIF('15Nov'!\$C\$6:\$C\$6,"x") and so on?
