I would like to insert a formula which counts the number of filled rows (Number or text) beside column A in each cell of column of A for each row. For example. Cell A4 should count the number of filled cells beside from B4:BP4. Cell A5 should count the number of filled cells beside from B5:BP5. The cell in column A should stay blank if there is nothing to count
