1. Look for the shorter version, but it's correct.
2. It's not quite correct. It counts all field_c in Row, so if a Row has
more than one field_c, your count goes wrong. You wanted to have the Rows
which have field_c, so it must be change it to Row[field_c] instead of
Row/field_c. But for your use case it works.
