    List - Count Item repeated maximum number of times

    Hi,

    I have a excel sheet where I have several parts names repeated.

    Say in total there are 12 different parts names repeated over 250 rows.

    But is there a way to find out which is repeated the maximum number of times.

    I tried to use COUNTIF function and loop to search for each in the range.

    Is there a better way?

    A pivot table?

    Rows >> Name3
    Values >> Count of Name3

    Yes a pivot table will do the job

    But I want to avoid to create a pivot table, if possible through other options.

    Something like nested countif functions, not sure that will give me the total count

    In your spreadsheet you state...

    I am after easiest way to figure that out
    IMHO, a pivot table is the easies method.

    If you want a different approach, check out this thread.
