    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

    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.

    Re: counting distinct values within different sub-ranges

    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.
