Hi all!

Struggling on something I thought would be simple again!

A1 1
A2 3
A3 3
A4 3
A5 5
A6 5

There are 3 different numbers being 1, 3 and 5. How do I get a result of 3?

Cheers in advance!

interesting formula Meldoc, but could you please explain how this is calculating?

I notice it treats empty cells as a unique value too, a little warning to the unwary...

thanks
