    Cool Count number of days from column of repeating dates

    I need a formula or code that will count the "number of days" from a column of dates, for example Column A and B has the following:

    Column A
    8/12/2013 AGRAHAM
    8/12/2013 AGRAHAM
    8/12/2013 AGRAHAM
    8/13/2013 AGRAHAM
    8/13/2013 AGRAHAM
    8/13/2013 AGRAHAM
    8/13/2013 AGRAHAM
    8/14/2013 AGRAHAM
    8/14/2013 AGRAHAM
    8/14/2013 AGRAHAM
    8/15/2013 AGRAHAM
    8/16/2013 AGRAHAM
    8/16/2013 AGRAHAM
    8/16/2013 AGRAHAM
    8/16/2013 AGRAHAM

    I need a formula that will populate one cell that there are "5" days listed in column A.

    Bonus question: this list above moves on to another name with another date range as I go down the spreadsheet. If the formula or code could be dragged down (calulating those dates into a "number of days", that would be great!

    With you sample data in A2:B27
    and
    C2: a name to count unique dates for....AGRAHAM

    This regular formula returns the count of unique dates for that name

    A shorter option that uses an ARRAY FORMULA, completed by holding down CTRL and SHIFT when you press ENTER (instead of just pressing ENTER)
