Help with this formula =COUNTIF(\$E7:\$CP7, "V")

I am trying to keep track of the vacation hours my employees take.  Excel has a good program that helps you count each quarter separately. However, this formula below means if I put a V in the space it turns it purple and a count of one in the total column. I actually need it to let me put in V-8 or V-4 so I can keep track of the actual hours.

Perhaps

=8*COUNTIF(\$E7:\$CP7, "V-8")+4*COUNTIF(\$E7:\$CP7, "V-4")

THANK YOU SO MUCH

I cannot tell you how much this helped me to get caught up. I do have one more question. In our company, they can take vacations in any amount. We are given a certain number of hours in January, and we can use them all year in any increments. It adds all the 4/8 I put in but not the other numbers.

Try this. If you don't have Microsoft 365 or Office 2021, confirm the formula with Ctrl+Shift+Enter:

=SUM(IF(LEFT(\$E7:\$CP7,2)="V-",-MID(\$E7:\$CP7,2,10)))
