Hi, i have a row of data containing 8 digit numbers and i want to count the number of 10,20 or 30 at the 5th and 6th digit is there an easy way to do this? Example: data in column A 10053001 24224002 14432001 54419030 44301002 10223001 55677501 not sure what to put in for the criteria but formula from above data should output a value of 4

i could do it by creating another formula =MID(A2,5,2) but would prefer not to as theres lots of data any help appreciated
