counting identical items in a column and returning the occurrences
I use excell 2000. I have one column with 700 rows. In each cell is one
number, either a 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. In the second column I have five rows, each with one number in increasing order: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Next to the numbers 05 (in column three) I want the total number of occurances for each number in column one. So out of the 700 rows, if the number 2 occurred 230 times, I want the number 230 to show in column 3 to correspond to the number 2 in column two. Any ideas?

Try this:
In C1 (to count the zeros) =COUNTIF($A$1:$A$701,"0") In C2 (to count the 1s): =COUNTIF($A$1:$A$701,"1") etc. Hope that helps. If it does, rate it has helpful at the bottom of the post.

In order to avoid the correction of each and every formula  in your private
case  I would suggest, in cell C1 to type the following formula and copy down till C6: =COUNTIF($A$1:$A$700,Row()1) Micky "ExcelWizardImNot" wrote: That did it. Thanks much.
