    Count unique value based on two criteria.

    Hello guys,

    Been trying for some time to get it right but not getting it though. I know it can be done with pivot table. I need it to be in formula though.

    I have duplicates ID in Column E.
    I have category VC1, VC2, VC3 in Column A.
    I have category Reg1 and Reg2 in Column B.

    What I would like to achieve is to get the unique count of ID that matches VC1 and Reg1.

    Appreciate in advanced.

    Can see see examples of what you are working with?

    Will you please attach a sample Excel workbook? Please don't attach a picture of one.

    1. Make sure that your sample data are REPRESENTATIVE of your real data. The use of unrepresentative data is very frustrating and can lead to long delays in reaching a solution.

    2. Make sure that your desired solution is also shown (mock up the results manually).

    3. Make sure that all confidential information is removed first!!

    4. Try to avoid using merged cells. They cause lots of problems!

    Unfortunately the attachment icon doesn't work at the moment. So, to attach an Excel file you have to do the following: Just before posting, scroll down to Go Advanced and then scroll down to Manage Attachments. Now follow the instructions at the top of that screen.

    OK. A guess, then... An array formula:

    Array Formulae are a little different from ordinary formulas in that they MUST be confirmed by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to activate the array, not just ENTER.

    You will know the array is active when you see curly braces { } appear around the outside of your formula. If you do not CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER you will (almost always) get an error message or an incorrect answer. Press F2 on that cell and try again.

    Don't type the curly braces yourself - it won't work...
