I would like to know how I can count the amount of different values in a column with some values that are the same?
My issue is that sometimes I have a column of varing numbers but there are some that are the same. I am not interested in the total count but in the count of numbers that are different.
The answer should be:
SO the result is:
1,2,3,4,5,7,8,9,12 = count= 9
How can I do this in Excel?
you want to count the number of distinct values:
For numeric values only, as per this question, you can use
FREQUENCY function like this
confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER
A way to do it w/o a formula, is to select the column and add a filter. An advanced filter has an option to filter out duplicates. Once enabled, you’ll see a count in the lower left corner. At least that’s how it works in Excel 2010.
