Select unique values in Microsoft Excel column

Thought I'd put a quick note here, I tried a fair few solutions that didn't work and then found this hidden away in a forum:

Quick Count
=INT(SUMPRODUCT((A3:A1000<>"")/COUNTIF(A3:A1000,A3:A1000&"")))

This returns the number of unique values in the range A3 to A1000 and excludes the blank/empty cells.

Display all Unique
Found this note on one of Microsoft Help sites:
    Office 2010:
  1. Select the data range to do this to.
  2. Click on the "Data" tab.
  3. Click on "Advanced" (Advanced Filter).
  4. Tick the "Unique records only" box.
Data, Advanced Filter, Unique Records only


A few more from Microsoft Office Help
/* Count the number of unique number values in cells A2:A10, but do not count blank cells or text values (4) */
=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(A2:A10,A2:A10)>0,1))

/* Count the number of unique text and number values in cells B2:B10 (which must not contain blank cells) (7) */
=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(MATCH(B2:B10,B2:B10,0),MATCH(B2:B10,B2:B10,0))>0,1))

/* Count the number of unique text and number values in cells A2:A10 , but do not count blank cells or text values (6) */
=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(LEN(A2:A10)>0,MATCH(A2:A10,A2:A10,0),""), IF(LEN(A2:A10)>0,MATCH(A2:A10,A2:A10,0),""))>0,1))
