Counting Unique Numeric Values or Unique Data in a List in Microsoft Excel

In this article, we will learn how to count the unique numeric values or unique data in a list. We can use two types of combinations of formulas in Microsoft Excel to get the distinct count.

 

Let’s take an example to understand how we can count the distinct numeric values or unique list.

We have a number list in range A2:A11.

To count the unique values in a range, follow below given steps:-

  • Write the formula in cell B2.
  • = SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(A2:A11,A2:A11)>0,1))
  • Press Enter on your keyboard.
  • The function will return 7. It means 7 numbers are unique out of 10 numbers.

Another formula we can use for the same result.

Use this mentioned formula =SUMPRODUCT((A2:A11<>"")/COUNTIF(A2:A11,A2:A11&""))in the cell C2. You will get the same result.
