Can I make this formula not count empty cells?

={"Score"; INDEX(if(len(A2:A), countif(if(REGEXEXTRACT(C2:BE,"(?i)yes")="yes", row(C2:C)), row(C2:C)),))}

Please use the following simple, still improved formula

                COUNTIF(IF(REGEXEXTRACT(D2:G,"(?i)yes")="yes", ROW(D2:D)), ROW(D2:D)),)=0,"",
                COUNTIF(IF(REGEXEXTRACT(D2:G,"(?i)yes")="yes", ROW(D2:D)), ROW(D2:D)),)))}

enter image description here

You will notice it is the same formula given before only this time we use an extra IF for when the result =0

  • So sorry for my late reply Kim. I totally missed your question. Apr 10, 2021 at 0:53
  • Thank you so much! I know I am being a real pain, but now when they answer no it won't count as zero. Is there any way to only get rid of the zero if the cells are blank? I know I may be asking for something impossible. I sure appreciate your help.
