Hello,

This can be done without VBA, just with a formula. In the Calculate column try

=IF(A2<>A1,COUNTIF(A:A,A2),"")

starting in row 2 and copy down.

This assumes that the data is sorted by the ID column and that there are no blank rows in the data. See attached sample file.

cheers, teylyn

Just in case your IDs are not sorted, the following can help:
Formula for row2, copy & paste for other rows.
=IF(MATCH(A2,A:A,0)=ROW(),COUNTIF(A:A,A2),"")

Try this formula for second question:
=IF(MATCH(A2,A:A,0)=ROW(),SUMIF(A:A,A2,B:B),"")

If you actually did want VBA instead of teylyn's excellent suggestion which I would also recommend, here is an update of the file with sample code
Sub CountID()
For Each c In Range("A2:A" & ActiveCell.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row)
  i = i + 1
  j = j + 1
  If c.Value <> c.Offset(1, 0).Value Then
    Range("A2").Offset(j - i, 2).Value = i
    i = 0
  End If
Next c
End Sub

After seeing numerous questions for Dynamic Data Validation I notice that most have used Visual Basic to solve the problem. This suggestion is purely formula based and can be used in multiple rows.
