I have a table consisting of

Name | Company | Tel
Mr A | Giant Corp | 1234
etc...

I would like some vb to count the amount of unique values in the company column.
Starting from row 2 to whatever the last row with data is.

Kind regards,
Antonio

Why do you need to do it with a macro?! Can't you do it with a formula? You could use SUMPRODUCT() or SUMIFS():

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

cbsbutler,

I hope gtloner doesn't mind but I've used his file (attached) to show another way of doing it using a Collection.

Patrick
Sub uv()
Dim rng As Range
Dim celle As Range
Dim coll As New Collection

With Sheets("Sheet1")
    Set rng = Range(.Cells(2, "B"), .Cells(.Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp))
End With

For Each celle In rng
    On Error Resume Next
    coll.Add celle, celle
Next celle

MsgBox "Number of unique entries in the Company column = " & coll.Count

End Sub

Open in new window
