    This post, with instructions on how to use CountIf is really really helpful for novice researchers needing to see the frequency of words when analyzing text. And therefore not having to buy expensive software!

    That was so very useful as I have to count Computer Club members who are PC, who are Mac and who are Both. You just made my job a lot easier!
    Thank you!
