That also works well thank you

Try this, click the button on the sheet to display counts
Code assigned to the button is
Code
Display MoreSub UniqueCounts() Dim x, y, e, i As Long, oDic1 As Object, oDic2 As Object Set oDic1 = CreateObject("scripting.dictionary") Set oDic2 = CreateObject("scripting.dictionary") With ActiveSheet x = .Cells(1).CurrentRegion With oDic1 For i = 1 To UBound(x, 1) If Not .exists(x(i, 2)) Then If Not oDic2.exists(x(i, 2) & " " & x(i, 3)) Then oDic2.Add x(i, 2) & " " & x(i, 3), Nothing .Add x(i, 2), 1 End If ElseIf Not oDic2.exists(x(i, 2) & " " & x(i, 3)) Then oDic2.Add x(i, 2) & " " & x(i, 3), Nothing .Item(x(i, 2)) = .Item(x(i, 2)) + 1 End If Next ReDim y(1 To .Count, 1 To 2): i = 0 For Each e In .keys i = i + 1 y(i, 1) = e: y(i, 2) = .Item(e) Next End With .Columns(5).Resize(, 2).Clear .[e1].Resize(UBound(y, 1), 2) = y End With End Sub
I wanted to count one value but this would be fine, thank you

If you highlight exactly this portion (B1:B10=G2)
and Hit F9 to evaluate ...
you should see : {FALSE;FALSE;TRUE;FALSE;FALSE;TRUE;FALSE;TRUE;FALSE;TRUE}
Then for my data set the return values are all false when selecting rows A1:A34538. The value I am looking for occurs 8 times within the column with duplicates. I replaced G2 with the value I am looking for using the same format.

Looks like the *(B1:B10=G2) part of the formula is returning 0 for all values even for the value in G2

1. Have you adjusted the ranges to their actual sizes ...?
2. Have you noticed in cell G2 ... the word Blue ... cannot be written Blue :
1. I adjusted the ranges and I still receive 0, it only works on a small data set
2. No I haven't, I'm not sure why it can't be written like that

Do you mind explaining why ....
When I applied this formula to a large data set it returned 0, could be because it only works for manually selected rows

Re,
Is the formula in Message # 4 producing your expected result ... or not ?
Unfortunately not

OK, I assume that all the colours in column B will have a number in column C and you are looking for a result that will give counts of each unique colour/number combinations. Is that correct?
Yes

Would VBA solution be acceptable?
Yes it would

Here is an example of the problem

I have a column of names related by a column of numbers corresponding to each name. Each name is connected to a number and the same number can repeat. I want to count how many times a name occurs removing duplicates.
