This seems like a simple Pivot Table to learn with. I would like to do a count of unique values for a particular value I’m grouping on.
For instance, I have this:
ABC 123 ABC 123 ABC 123 DEF 456 DEF 567 DEF 456 DEF 456
What I want is a pivot table that shows me this:
ABC 1 DEF 2
The simple pivot table that I create just gives me this (a count of how many rows):
ABC 3 DEF 4
But I want the number of unique values instead.
What I’m really trying to do is find out which values in the first column don’t have the same value in the second column for all rows. In other words, “ABC” is “good”, “DEF” is “bad”
I’m sure there is an easier way to do it but thought I’d give pivot table a try…
Insert a 3rd column and in Cell
C2 paste this formula
and copy it down. Now create your pivot based on 1st and 3rd column. See snapshot
