    Count the number of occasions

    My data is a list of (in reality 3000x larger)

    users and the company they belong to. I want to find out how many companies have 1,2,3,4,5 and more than 5 users. Any idea? I am using a pivot table to find out the number of users per company (easy so far) but then I get stuck when I want to use a countif with getpivotdata...

    Example of my 2 columns:

    user company
    user1 a
    user2 b
    user3 c
    user4 b
    user5 c

    Any help would be great

    If you're saying that no user is repeated then you can just add a COUNT column @ source such that:

    C1: "Heads"
    C2: =MIN(6,COUNTIF(B:B,B2)
    copied down

    Then set up the PT such that:

    ROW Field: Company
    COLUMN Field: Heads
    DATA Field: Users - Count
