So what results do you want?

If you want to count a specific name in that whole range try COUNTIF, e.g.

=COUNTIF(A$2:E$100,G2)

where G2 contains a specific name

Hi Barry,
   Thank you for the response. I am trying to get a count of how many times a unique name shows up in the entire table. For example, I want to have a count of how many times Stacy Snyder's name shows up in the entire table. End result - I would like to have one column show all the unique names and a column next to it count how many times that name displayed in the table.
Regards,
Kelly

Hi Kelly,

The attached code should do what you require.

Thomas

Sub Macro2()
Dim sht As Worksheet, rg As Range, i As Long

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual

Set rg = Range("A1").CurrentRegion.Offset(1)
Set sht = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets.Add
rg.Copy sht.[a1]

With sht
    
    For i = 1 To rg.Columns.Count
    
        If i > 1 Then .Range(.Cells(1, i), .Cells(Rows.Count, i).End(xlUp)).Cut .Cells(.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1)
              
    Next

    .Range(.Cells(1, 1), .Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp)).RemoveDuplicates Columns:=1, Header:=xlNo

    .Range("B1:B" & .Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row).FormulaR1C1 = "=countif('" & rg.Parent.Name & "'!" & rg.Address(True, True, xlR1C1) & ",RC[-1])"

End With

Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic

End Sub
