We have a query that we need the "distinct" value count.  

On the attached screenshot, you will see per week we need a count of locations that ordered.  not the "# of orders".

For example,  Fort Bragg Honeycutt Shoppette has 2 orders for the week of 12/2/2013.  We want to only have it count "1" because they ordered.

I have found that there is an add-on, but we are not permitted to install on the Company's Terminal Server.

Thank you for your assistance!

Are you able to attach the workbook, or sample, as it may be possible to add an array formula against your source data, like the attached sample

{=MAX(IF(C2=$C$2:$C$100,IF(F2=$F$2:$F$100,$D$2:$D$100,0),0))}

Hi SharpApproach

I believe, that I solved a similar problem for a colleague last week (at least if I understand your question correctly).

I have attached the file, and in the file, you can see where I found my inspiration. I used two "Help Columns in my dataset - which did the trick.

I can not see which version of Excel you have, but in 2013 you should be able to use "Distinct Count" in your pivot, which is doing the same as I do in the attached file.

regards
