Count Cells equals to Cells with Case Sensitive


Assuming that you want to count cells that contain value “EXCEL” defined in a selected range(A1:B6), taking into account upper and lower case. In this case, you can use the SUMPRODUCT function combining with the EXACT function to count cells exactly equal to with case sensitive in your worksheet.

Enter the following formula in a blank cell, and press Enter key:

=SUMPRODUCT((–EXACT(“EXCEL”,A2:A6)))

count cells equals to cell with case sensitive1

Note: the above formula provides a case-sensitive count of a text string value “EXCEL”. A2:A6 is the data range that you want to use. And “EXCEL” is the specific value that you want to count in range A2:A6. You need to change them as you need.

Now Let’s see how this formula works:

The EXACT function has two arguments. When those two arguments match exactly, it returns TRUE value. Otherwise, it returns FALSE value.

=EXACT(“EXCEL”,A2:A6)

count cells equals to cell with case sensitive3

This formula will compare one text value “EXCEL” with each cell values in range A2:A6. Actually, It will return an array result similar to the following values:

{TRUE,FALSE,FALSE,TRUE,FALSE}

Then you need to use a double-negative(–) to convert TRUE and FALSE values into “1” or “0”. And the result is changed as the below array:

{1,0,0,1,0}

count cells equals to cell with case sensitive2

The above array result will be passed into the SUMPRODUCT function as its argument, and sums all values in the array result. It should return number 2.
