Determining and Indicating the Number of Times Each Value Has Been Entered in a List

Problem:

We want to create a formula to determine the total number of times each value in List1 (column A) has been entered. The formula should also provide a textual indication of the calculated frequency.

Solution:

Use the IF and COUNTIF functions as shown in the following formula:
=IF(COUNTIF($A$2:$A$8,A2)=1,”Unique”,
COUNTIF($A$2:$A$8,A2)&” Duplicates”)
