thank you but I may have explained wrongly

The problem is that I have 15000 lines in column A, without knowing the exact content to manually build column D and I want precisely to generate automatically column D  !

Column D will be (like in your sheet) same content as column A but only ONE TIME every unique instance

How to generate automatically column D?

Thank you

If you want to automatically generate count column, use pivot table (see example).
