I have two columns in my worksheet. In column A I have the last name
and in column B I have "active" or "inactive"

Column A Column B
Johnson Active
Johnson Inactive
Smith Active
Newsome Active
Martin Active
Martin Inactive

What I want to do is count the users who are listed as both "active"
and "inactive" once--counting them only as "active." For the above
example, I would only Johnson and Martin as "active" and ignore the
listing for them that states "inactive." (by the way, although
Johnson is listed twice, it is still the same person--just two
different status)

I do not know what function or formula to use. Please help me.
