#### Count unique values within date range by formula

To count unique values within a date range, you can apply a formula.

Select a cell that you will place the counted result, and type this formula =SUMPRODUCT(IF((B2:B8<=E2)*(B2:B8>=E1), 1/COUNTIFS(B2:B8, "<="&E2, B2:B8, ">="&E1, A2:A8, A2:A8), 0)), press Shift + Ctrl + Enter to get the correct result. See screenshot:

Tip: in the above formula, B2:B8 is the date cells in your data range, E1 is the start date, E2 is the end date, A2:A8 is the id cells you want to count unique values from. You can change these criteria as you need.

{="TOTAL ORANGES: "&SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(\$B\$4:\$B\$59<>"",MATCH(\$B\$4:\$B\$59,\$B\$4:\$B\$59,0)),ROW(\$B\$4:\$B\$59)-ROW(B4)+1),\$K\$4:\$K\$59))}

1. This only counts an incident once
2. Sums the value associated with each incident
3. Needs to sum only values between two dates.

Hi there! This worked perfectly for what I needed but I need to alter it so that it does not county blank cells - do you have any recommendations for this?
