Please note that this is an array formula. press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to enter
the formula. If successful in 'Formula Bar' you can notice the curly braces
at both ends like "{=<formula>}"

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(MATCH(TRIM(B2:B5),TRIM(B2:B5),0),
MATCH(TRIM(B2:B5),TRIM(B2:B5),0))>0,1))

#### Teethless mama

=SUMPRODUCT((A1:A5<>"")/COUNTIF(A1:A5,A1:A5&""))

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(MATCH(TRIM(B2:B5),TRIM(B2:B5),0),
MATCH(TRIM(B2:B5),TRIM(B2:B5),0))>0,1))

That'll count empty cells.

=SUMPRODUCT((A1:A5<>"")/COUNTIF(A1:A5,A1:A5&""))

Array entered** :

=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(A1:A7000<>"",MATCH(A1:A7000,A1:A7000,0)),ROW(A1:A7000)-ROW(A1)+1),1))

** array formulas need to be entered using the key combination of
CTRL,SHIFT,ENTER (not just ENTER). Hold down both the CTRL key and the SHIFT
key then hit ENTER.

The array formula is significantly more efficient on a range that size.

AVG calc time on 7000 rows:

SUMPRODUCT = 2.88 secs
FREQUENCY = 0.09 secs

Biff, I think you have missed the point which OP is raising.

"there is space after B2 cell how i can trim it before use the Match"

No, that was already answered. I was making a suggestion based on the
generic count of uniques formula TM posted with regards to "big" ranges.
