Hello,

I am trying to count cells with unique information, or different information that displays in a row, however, since some of these cells are blank, it's returning as #NA. Doing some research, I suppose it's required to use another formula that reads and tells the formula to continue to count the cells in the range. I was using the formula --> =SUMPRODUCT(--(FREQUENCY(MATCH(C5:C19,C5:C19,0),ROW(C5:C19)-ROW(C5)+1)>0)), but got the #NA due to the blank cells. I tried this formula -->{=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(C5:C19<>"",MATCH(C5:C19,C5:C19, 0)),ROW(C5:C19)-ROW(C5:C19.C5)+1),1))}

and it does nothing, or it returns as too many arguments error. I just need a number to display that calculates the different results that are typed in to cells C5:C19, disregarding blank cells, but keeping them available in the row. Thank you in advance!
