I have attached a helper spreadsheet to help explain what I am trying to do...

In column D of Sheet1 I am trying to count the number of unique entries in column D of Sheet2 when Sheet1!A = Sheet2!H

In English...How many different codes did a person use based on the USER_INIT with the result in column D on the row matching each change in user.

Use, in D2
=COUNTIF(Sheet2!$H:$H, Sheet1!$A2)

then copy down.

Try:

=COUNT(1/FREQUENCY(IF(Sheet2!$H$2:$H$3283=A2,IF(Sheet2!$D$2:$D$3283<>"",MATCH(Sheet2!$D$2:$D$3283,Sheet2!$D$2:$D$3283,0))),ROW(Sheet2!$D$2:$D$3283)-ROW(Sheet2!$D$2)+1))

Open in new window


confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER not just ENTER and copy down.

Have you tried mine above?

An alternative with Array formula, but uses helper column...

In Sheet2!J2 enter:

=COUNTIFS($D$2:$D2,$D2,$H$2:$H2,$H2)

copied all the way down.

then in D2 of Sheet1:

=COUNTIFS(Sheet2!H:H,A2,Sheet2!J:J,1)

copied down.

Yup, did not read carefully your question.

NVBC's solution works (the array formula, did not try the helper, but being from NVBC I would say that works too :)
