Excel help counting colors

Occasional Contributor

Is there a way to count cell colors without having numbers in them without using ASAP Utilities. The attached spreadsheet is used for scheduling machines. My employees work many different hours and found this to be a good way to get the hours i need on each machine. On the Monday through Saturday tabs, columns AI-AL look for colors and returns the count of cell with those colors. I have ASAP Utilities doing it now but want others to be able to manage which means I have to buy more liscenses for only this use

You have used conditional formatting, so you can use COUNTIF or COUNTIFS with the same criteria as used in the conditional formatting rules.

But the rules don't make sense to me - please review them carefully to check that they do what you want.
