I've downloaded the Excel Morefunc Addin which contains a formula to create a list of unique values based on a list (assume column A).

In Cell B2, I have a formula that reads {=uniquevalues($A$2:$A$500,1)}, however this only shows the first value when you drag the formula down; thus not allowing you to create a list of unique values.  Any help would be amazing!

Thanks

First, select a range to hold your unique values, then type your formula, and hit ctrl-shift-enter when done.  The results will go into that originally selected range.  That's how you create an array output.

See attached where I've done that.  The yellow area was the original area I selected, then I entered the =UniqueValues() function, then I hit CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER and presto - the unique values turned up in the yellow area.

Enjoy!
