    count codes in a column w. several codes in a same cell

    Hi,

    in the attached file there are some codes listed in a column ; there are some cells which have several codes.
    The codes are separated wether with a comma, or with a semi-column.
    I'd like to count the different codes.
    Does anyone has any idea ?

    thanks a lot,
    Chum.

    Hi Carim,

    yes but the problem is that there are some codes with 3 and some others with 4 characters, so even when I manually delimit the cells, I can not catch all codes correctly.
    Do you have another suggestion ?

    thanks !

    Hi chum,

    In Data, Text to Columns, try Delimited, Comma & SemiColon, then do a cut/paste of column B to the end of column A, repeat for columns C D and E, then Filter, Advanced Filter, Unique, Copy to location.

    This will give a unique list, the last row is the count.
