I have a list of phone numbers and I need a function to show me which one appears most often in the list? Is there a neat little function in the list

Any help appreciated

Can you AutoAverage in Excel?
There is a drop-down next to the AutoSum symbol. Open the drop-down to choose AVERAGE, COUNT, MAX, or MIN

Have you tried CountIF Function to count the rpeated value in a range of data?

=CountIf(A:A,123) will return the number of apperance of 123 in the column A.

I could use that these are just numbers called and I don't want to know if a specific number has been called I want to know which one has been called the most. Hope that clarifies it

=MODE(Range)

if Range is of numeric type.

=INDEX(Range,MATCH(MAX(SETV(COUNTIF(Range,Range))),GETV(),0))

which you need to array-enter, that is, to hit control+shift+enter at the same time (not just enter). Note that this formula holds for a range that is either of numeric type or type text.

Postscript. SETV and GETV are part of the morefunc.xll add-in, downloadable from:
