# How to Count Cells that Contain even or odd numbers in Excel

## Count Number of Cells that Contain Even Numbers

Assuming that you have a data list in the range of cells B1:B6, and you want count the number of cells containing only even numbers, and write the result in cell D1.You can use a formula based on the SUMPRODUCT function and the MOD function. Like this:

=SUMPRODUCT(–(MOD(B1:B6,2)=0))

Let’s see how this formula works:

=MOD(B1:B6,2)=0

The Mod function can be used to check whether the cell within the range B1:B6 containing the numbers if they are divided by 2 or not. If True, it indicates that that number is an even number. This formula returns an array result like:

{TRUE;TRUE;TRUE;FALSE;FALSE;TRUE}

The double negative operator would convert the above result array into 1 and 0. And still returns an array result. Like:

{1;1;1;0;0;1}

The SUMPRODUCT function will add those numbers in the array result and returns the final result.

## Count Number of Cells that Contain Odd Numbers

If you want to count number that contain odd numbers within a range of cells B1:B6, and you can use a formula based on the SUMPRODUCT function along with the MOD function. Like below:

=SUMPRODUCT(–(MOD(B1:B6,2)<>0))

The Mod function will check whether the cell with the range B1:B6 containing numbers are divided by 2 or not.

Dim mysheet As Worksheet
Dim myrange As Range
Set mysheet = Worksheets("Sheet3")
Set myrange = mysheet.Range("B1:B6")
For Each xcell In myrange
cellmod = xcell Mod 2
oddnum = oddnum + cellmod
Next xcell
mysheet.Range("D1") = oddnum

End Sub```

Step5# back to the current worksheet, click on `Macros` button under `Code` group. then click `Run` button.
