Group by count formula

Working with vehicle reservations, I need to determine how many times a
certain model vehicle is reserved. For example, I have a column titled
"model" where the reservationist can put in Taurus, Windstar, etc. I
need to chart the data showing the models by group and then how many
times the vehicle within that group was reserved. Ex: one axis would
chart the different groups and the other the count within the group.

That's all I need to chart; the group and the count within the group
and I'm having a heck of time trying to figure out a formula for it.
Thanks for any insight you guys can give me, nobrabbit.

You should really do yourself the favour of looking at Pivot tables

Failing that check out the SUMPRODUCT function for counting/summing more than
one criteria
