Hi All

I am comparing two columns to find unique values. I have the below but I need help to stop blank cells returning a yes value.

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(E3,$B$3:$B$7000,1,FALSE)),"Yes","NO")
I would also like to count the unique values but avoid an array formula. I have the below but not yet working:

=SUM(1/COUNTIF($E$3:$E$7000, $E$3:$E$7000))+SUM(IF(COUNTIF($E$3:$E$7000, $B$3:$B$7000)=0, 1/COUNTIF($B$3:$B$7000, $B$3:$B$7000), 0))
Many thanks for any help :)
