1. how many staff have 1 skill, how many staff have 2 skills, etc.

dear excel lovers,

one spreadsheet (2000 records), 2 columns, staff_id (700 unique records) and
skill_id (10 unique records). one staff can have one or more skill and I need
to know how many staff have 1 skill, how many staff have 2 skills, etc.

somehow it seems easy on paper but I can't found anything on the access or
excekl forums because I don't know what to look for!!

2. RE: how many staff have 1 skill, how many staff have 2 skills, etc.

With your list in columns A and B, with headings in A1 and B1, try this
formula:

For staff with 3 skills:
D1: =SUMPRODUCT((COUNTIF(\$A\$2:\$A\$2000,\$A\$2:\$A\$2000)=3)/3)

For staff with 2 skills:
E1: =SUMPRODUCT((COUNTIF(\$A\$2:\$A\$2000,\$A\$2:\$A\$2000)=2)/2)

Does that help?
