Hello -

I'm trying to figure out a formula that can tell me how many candidates have the activity date of "External Submittal" without counting the same candidate twice.

Using the below as the example, the results should be 7. There are 7 candidates with the activity type of External Submittal. As you see there is a candidate listed twice w/the activity type of external submittal. I want the formula to only count that candidate once.

Please help!!!!

Try this array formula

=SUM(--(FREQUENCY(IF(B2:B100="External Submittal",MATCH(A2:A100,A2:A100,0)),ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&ROWS(A2:A100))))>0))

Yeah, again an array formula

=SUM(--(FREQUENCY(IF((B2:B100="External Submittal")+(B2:B100="Attach to Order (System)"),MATCH(A2:A100,A2:A100,0)),ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&ROWS(A2:A100))))>0))
