1. No man ever finished his work, for each task is but a preparation, which, being completed, should be put under our feet, that we may thenceforward labor on a higher level. Thus, no true worker was ever satisfied with what he accomplished, for, by doing that, he had qualified himself to do something better.

  11. How to count unique values in a column(s) in Google Docs

    I was trying to figure out how to count the occurrences of a value in a column and was lead to a crappy Google Groups page that didn’t help at all. I eventually figured it out for myself, though!

    Let’s say column A has a bunch of data and you want to count how many times a certain value is present:

    A
    B
    B
    A
    B
    C
    C
    B
    A
    C
    

    First we want the unique values. So in B1 enter the formula =UNIQUE(A:A) It’ll automatically populate as many rows as needed to show you all unique values. Column B should now contain:

    A
    B
    C
    

    Now we just need to count how many of a value in column B is present in column A. In C1 use the formula =COUNTIF(A:A, B1) and copy that down to match however many rows you have in B (in this example, that’s 3 rows) and then in column C we get:

    3
    4
    3

    That’s it! 

    A  |  A  |  3
    B  |  B  |  4
    B  |  C  |  3
    A  |     |
    B  |     |
    C  |     |
    C  |     |
    B  |     |
    A  |     |
    C  |     |
