    Only count ONE reponse per person, if they answer the same response more than once.

    Hi All,

    I am after a formula which only counts 1 "Yes" response from each person. Here is an example below:

    example.png

    Basically, I would like a forumla that counts how many times "Yes" has appeared in column B, HOWEVER it will only count 1 "Yes" vote from each person.

    For example, in this picture person A has answered "Yes" twice, but I want this to only be counted as 1. Any future times person A has answered "Yes" will not be counted. The same for person B, C and D and so forth. I am after the total of this frequency, which in this example would be 4.

    Is this possible?

    Thank you!

    Try this:

    =MIN(1,COUNTIFS($A$2:$A$11,C2,$B$2:$B$11,"Yes"))
