# Counting the frequency of a value used in a formula

1. ## Counting the frequency of a value used in a formula

Hi all,

I'm trying to calculate the frequency a value is used in a formula. I have a range of results (ranging numerically from 1-9) each connected to a topic/subject. I have created a cell which identifies the largest number amongst those results in every row (=LARGE(S5:AN5,{1{)).

What i'm trying to calculate is the frequency of which particular topics/subjects are identified as the largest.

e.g. in row 5, '9' is identified as the highest value. This is under the subject 'Computing'. In row 6, '8' is identified as the largest number and this is under the subject 'History'. What i'd like to know is how frequently 'History' or 'Computing' is identified as the largest value in the set of results.

History Biology Computing Maths Geography Art HIGHEST
5 6 7 7 3 9 9
4 5 6 4 4 4 6

So I want a table like:

History 0
Biology 0
Computing 1
Maths 0
Geography 0
Art 1

Thanks!

Rule 08: Cross-posting Without Telling Us

Your post does not comply with Rule 8 of our Forum RULES. Do not cross-post your question on multiple forums without telling us about your threads on other forums.

Post a link to any other forums where you have asked the same question. If you have fewer than 10 posts here, you will not be able to post a link, but you must still tell us where else you have asked the question.

Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. The last thing you want to do is waste people's time working on an issue you have already resolved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser) to the cross-post.

Expect cross-posted questions without a link to be closed and a message will be posted by the moderator explaining why. We are here to help so help us to help you!

Read this to understand why we ask you to do this, and then please edit your first post to include links to any and all cross-posts in any other forums (not just this site).

No further help to be offered, please, until the OP has complied with this request.
