Explanation

If you need to count the number of rows in a range, use the ROWS function. In the generic form of the formula (above) rng represents a range of cells.

In the example, the active cell contains this formula:

=ROWS(B4:C9)

ROWS counts the number of rows in the supplied range and returns that number as the result.
