Countif or Sumif with frequency

P

Paul

Hello,

I am looking for a formula that can help me whit the next question:
In column C are dates and i want to know the frequency in Column B,
I inserted column B, because text is not handy. I want to now the
count/frequency and not the sum.

Example 1: I want to know for 16 january, the count of Column B (=3) and
afterwards i want in column D -1, so the result is 2 (in column D).

Example 2: 23 january, it are three rows, it contains number 3 twice, so i
want to know that the count/frequency is 2, and also -1, which result in 1
(in column D).

I hope that somebody can help me with this and give me a correct formula. I
spend a lot of time, but could not find the right formula.

Regards,

Paul

AB 1 1/9/09 0

Hello Paul,

That's what I developed my UDF Pfreq for:

You would not need your helper column B.

Just select an output range of 10 rows and 2 columns and array-enter:
=Pfreq(Pfreq(C1:C100,A1:A100))

Please note that you need to subtract 1 from resulting numbers...
