I have the following array

array1 = array("test1","test2","test3","test4","test1","test1","test4","test5","test1","test4","test7","test7","test1","test7","test4")

I need a table output that with the duplicates and the quantity, like that

Name         Number of occurrences
test1                   5
test4                   4
test7                   3

Any idea?

Maybe using array_count_values: http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.array-count-values.php

<?php
$array1 = array("test1","test2","test3","test4","test1","test1","test4","test5","test1","test4","test7","test7","test1","test7","test4");
print_r(array_count_values($array1));
?>

---------------

Array ( [test1] => 5 [test2] => 1 [test3] => 1 [test4] => 4 [test5] => 1 [test7] => 3 )

HTH,

If you only want to use the duplicates, something like this:
<?php
//function to test if a value is 1
function not1($var) { return ($var != 1);}

//test array
$array1 = array("test1","test2","test3","test4","test1","test1","test4","test5","test1","test4","test7","test7","test1","test7","test4");

//get the count for each value of $array1
$array1freq = array_count_values($array1);

//filter the frequency array to only keep the duplicates
$array1dup = array_filter($array1freq, "not1");

print_r($array1dup);
?>
------------------
Array ( [test1] => 5 [test4] => 4 [test7] => 3 )

You have an array. That is a table...

You mean a HTML table? You're displaying that where?

Please post the HTML code of the page where you want to display those results.

Here's a simple HTML table to output the result:
<?php
//function to test if a value is 1
function not1($var) { return ($var != 1);}

//test array
$array1 = array("test1","test2","test3","test4","test1","test1","test4","test5","test1","test4","test7","test7","test1","test7","test4");

//get the count for each value of $array1
$array1freq = array_count_values($array1);

//filter the frequency array to only keep the duplicates
$array1dup = array_filter($array1freq, "not1");
?>
<table>
	<tr>
		<th>Name</th>
		<th>Number of occurences</th>
	</tr>
	<?php foreach ($array1dup as $key => $value) {
		echo "<tr>";
		echo "<td>".$key."</td>";
		echo "<td>".$value."</td>";
		echo "</tr>";
	}
	?>
</table>
