Hey! I used a countif to the other sheet, and a search to extract the name on sheet 2, I've attached the file to this reply, take a look!


Formula for extracting the name in Sheet2 cell B2:
=LEFT(A2, SEARCH(",",A2) - 1)

Formula in Sheet1 cell B2 for counting the occurrences on Sheet2:
=COUNTIF(Sheet2!$B$2:$B$6,Sheet1!A2)
