To analyse the columns where object names can appear in any column BUT they DO NOT repeat in the same column.
if the object name appear once = 1
if repeat twice = 2
if repeat thrice = 3
1. Column A B C E - in text format, F - in numeric format
2. Object name can appear more than once (but of course less than or equal to 3 times) in different COLUMN each.
3. Object name will NOT be repeated in the same column.
4. Object name, if repeated in each column may appear in different rows.
VLOOKUP works in sequence but the search for my case is all jumbled.
