# counting distinct values within different sub-ranges

1. ## counting distinct values within different sub-ranges

Hi Community,

This is my first post, I hope you will be able to help me

I am trying to do 2 counts. Firstly, a count of the number of devices that are being used in each ward of the hospital.

Secondly, a count of the number of patients in each ward in the hospital.

I have attached sample data with the manually calculated results.

Many thanks
Leeroy

In G4 copied down:

=SUMPRODUCT((1/(COUNTIF(\$C\$4:\$C\$11,\$C\$4:\$C\$11))*(\$B\$4:\$B\$11=F4)))

G5 in your WB is inaccurate.

In H4 copied down:

=COUNTIF(\$B\$4:\$B\$11,F4)

You could also add the table to the data model and do a pivot using distinct count for the patient.

Thanks AliGW . Those formulas worked. However, when trying to adjust the formula so that it looks at all of column B & C (except B1:C3) i get back #DIV/0! I tried to change the formula to this

=SUMPRODUCT((1/(COUNTIF(\$C\$4:\$C\$1048576,\$C\$4:\$C\$1048576))*(\$B\$4:\$B\$1048576=K4)))

Any ideas?

I imagine the real data has blank rows.

Please provide a more realistic sample dataset.
