Count how many times the same word appears in column

Hello,

I have a long list of about 50,000 words in column A. Some of these
words are the same.

I want to know the exact number of times each word appears in the A
column.

And I want to sort these words based on how many times they appear in
the A column.

How can I do that?

Hi Bob,

Excel displays an error when I type in the formula. What should I do?

Hi Alexa,

The formula works okay for me.

Give us some details of the way you added it, the error and your data.
