Who can help me to the following sollution.

I have a tabel with several text items in a collumn. A lot of them duplicating.

In a pivottable I want to count how many different text items the are.

F.i: 200 lines with text of which there are only 15 different text items.
With "count" this gaves me now 200 i.s.o. 15.

Thanx for reacting.

Forget making PT to count unique items. Try instead:

=SUMPRODUCT(NameEange<>"")/COUINTIF(NameRange,NameRnge&""))
