    COUNTUNIQUE Function in Google Sheets; Excel lacks a direct counterpart to this function?

    In Google Sheets, one finds the COUNTUNIQUE function. Excel seems to lack a direct counterpart to this function. Does this stand as an incorrect assessment on my part?

    No, you are correct. The Excel equivalent would be:

    =SUMPRODUCT(1/COUNTIF(Array,Array))

    With blanks:

    =SUMPRODUCT(1/COUNTIF(Array,Array&""))

    Array is simply the array you want to test, and it needs to be tested against itself, so it is repeated.
