    use this CSE formula =SUM(IF($C$2:$C$101=C2,1/COUNTIF($A$2:$A$101,$A$2:$A$101)))

    Re: count unique values based on unique values

    doesn't seem to work. I tried this but the result is 0. Also I want to give an argument in the formula.

    For E.g. say if I like to count all the unique clinets in SW branch how do I do it?

    Re: count unique values based on unique values

    This formula is an array formula and is not entered in the normal way (i.e just hit ENTER). That's what Sadath meant when he said it was a CSE formula.
    You need to use CNTRL + SHFT + ENTER. When you do that, you'll see {} appear around your formula.
    Go to D2 and place your cursor inside the formula bar, then hit CNTRL SHFT ENTER.
    Now you can drag that down.
    Did that help?

    substitute commas with semi-colons if your region settings requires

    Re: count unique values based on unique values

    Always wondered why nobody thought of a simple function like "countu" to count unique values. This is absolutely brilliant. Thankyou. Much appriciated..

    Wondering if you would help me in adding another layer of condition in the data attached.

    Say if I have to count all unique clients in any branch who started before say a particular date, would this work. I tried to use 'AND' function with 'if', didn't work..

    Unhappy Re: count unique values based on unique values

    Excellent help for me on this issue but running into one problem that you may have remedied:

    If I need to reference the value below (shown as "B2, from another column (like X2), I get "0" value

    =SUM(IF($B$2:$B$5000=B2,1/COUNT IF($K$2:$K$5000,$K$2:$K$5000)))

    Is there not a way to reference the value in another column???

    Example B.xlsx

    Re: count unique values based on unique values

    Would Prefer to use the formula, because I am building a Dashboard and it would all more flexibility. If this Sum(if.. will not work without using a cell within the array, then okay, but it seemed to be within reason to be able to.

    thanks anyway for your help. appreciate your effort.

    Re: count unique values based on unique values

    @neetu.aggarwal:

    see if the attached works for you.
    - i.s.z -
    CSE, aka Array aka { }, formulae are confirmed with CONTROL+SHIFT+ENTER.
    Replace commas ( , ) with semicolons ( ; ) in formulae, if your locale setting demands.
    All good ideas are courtesy resources from this forum as well as others around the web.
    - e.o.m -

    @davidnelson:

    you should create your own thread instead of hijacking others'. anyway, see if the attached works for you.

    your data have some issues - the BUYER column has numbers in TEXT format, where as, in the small tableau where you are trying to create a summary table, BUYER is in NUMBER format. this kind of mishmash is recipe for disaster.
