    Count unique text from multiple columns concatenated w/ one column

    10-1-2015 3-39-21 PM.png
    My data looks something like (assume begins in A1):
    Category,Label1,Label2
    Dogs,blank,doe
    Dogs,zoo,blank
    Cats,zoo,yup
    Cats,doe,hgg
    Cats,blank,doe

    This function works for count of overall unique labels in cols B & C
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    Result: 4

    But I want the following so that I can include col A in the evaluation.
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    the result would then be: 6

    The problem is countif doesn't seem to like the concatenated ranges in its first argument. Is there a way to fix this?


    BTW I am looking at this as an intermediate solution. What I really want to do is this: http://www.excelforum.com/excel-form...ml#post4204459
