New Favorite thing in Excel – Frequency

I love it when I can learn a new thing in software program.

I have had to do this function many times before, however, I have never run across this option:  “Frequency”.

A B C D
1 Purchased   Colors
2 Green   Green
3 Yellow    
4 Green    
5 Red    

 

=frequency(B2:B10,D2) Results = 2

Counts how many times in B2 thru B10 that match what is in D2 – Awesome.

so, let’s add a little bit to this (I love things that do multiple things at one time (multi-tasking!) )


IF… you wanted to know how many unique items are in a column:

=SUM( — (FREQUENCY(B2:B5,B2:B5)>0))

—   =  Double-unary: A single unary operator (-) coerces true/false values into -1/0. By using the double unary operaor, we coerce the values again to 1/0.

This can be used in place of the countif statement for large sets of data.
