Excel formula Edit

I have the below code with groups the previous column by a number.

=IF(COUNTIF($D$1:$D2,$D2)=1,MAX($E$1:E1)+1,INDEX($E$1:E1,MATCH($D2,$D$1:$D1,0),1))

Open in new window


Currently is starts to with "1". How do I change it to another number?

Hi,

without data I suppose by changing the bold ones

IF(COUNTIF($D$1:$D2,$D2)=1,MAX($E$1:E1)+1,INDEX($E$1:E1,MATCH($D2,$D$1:$D1,0),1))

and maybe the +1 after MAX
