Hi!

In order to count the number of unique entries in a range of cells, a
very
complicated nested set of functions (SUM, IF, FREQUENCY, MATCH, LEN,
etc.)
is
required in Excel.


Not really!

=SUMPRODUCT((A1:A15<"")/COUNTIF(A1:A15,A1:A15&""))

I suggest adding a COUNTU worksheet function that would automatically
count
the number of unique data entries. It should have options for counting
numbers, numbers + text, excluding blank cells, etc.

Thanks,
Wayne
