Using an array formula to count the number of unique items in a list: Excel 2016: Managing and Analyzing Data

Excel doesn't have a function that counts the number of unique entries in a range, but if you want to count the number of unique entries in the range B2:B900, use this array formula: =SUM(1/COUNTIF(B2:B900,B2:B900)) and then press Ctrl+Shift+Enter. This formula will not work if there are any empty cells in the range.
