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.

Do you hold Shift + Ctrl and press Enter key? Or is there any unique values in your date range?This formula used to count unique values in a date range only.

Thanks for the great article. I tried using the below formula, but keep getting this error: "Function DIVIDE parameter 2 cannot be zero." [quote]=ArrayFormula(SUMPRODUCT(IF((D4:D200=M3), 1/COUNTIFS(D4:D200, "="&M3, C4:C200, C4:C200), 0)))[/quote] D4:D200 - date span C4:C200 - data span M3 - the date (1st day of the month)
