    Count number of times a specific word appears

    I would like to count the number of times a name appears in c31:u31 and post the name only once in x16:x26 and the number of times the name appears next to it in z16:z26. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

    First unmerge cell X16
    in Cell X16 use:
    {=IFERROR(INDEX($C$31:$U$31,MATCH(0,COUNTIF($X$15:X15,$C$31:$U$31),0)),"")}
    Remember CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER, then copy down to cell X26
    in Cell Y16 use:
    =IF(X16="","",COUNTIF($C$31:$U$31,X16))
    Then copy down

    Thank you! One last addition to this that I didn't think of: I would like the x16:x26 to exclude No Skin in the count. Is this possible?

    This proposed solution builds on the one that we discussed in one of your previous threads and employs two helper columns.
    Column AG is populated by the formula:
