You can use
=COUNTIF ( Range, Criteria)

For example,
=COUNTIF(D:D,D1) -> it will give you the number of times the D1 values exists in D column.

If the above is not helpful, please provide example for your request

If you mean how may distinct values:

=SUMPRODUCT(1/COUNTIF(D1:D100,D1:D100&""))

adjust the ranges as required.
