# Number Duplicate Values (in Chronological Order) Based on DateTime Column

My first post!

I am attempting to build a formula in Excel which will count the number of duplicates in the [Load ID] column while respecting the chronological order in the [Tender Request Creation Date/Time] column.

In the attached image, columns A through C represent my current results using a CountIF formula. Columns E through G represent my desired outcome. Pay special attention to the difference in order between columns B and F. This is an example of a single Load ID. There are almost 8500 unique values and 1900 duplicates in my attached file. In some instances, the Load ID can be duplicated up to 7 times.

Let me know if you require any additional information. Thanks!

@FlowEZ All you need to do is a custom sort. First on Load (ascending) then on Date/Time (ascending).

(Screenshot taken in Excel for Mac, but it's similar in the Windows version.)

RE-attaching your file with the sorting in it.

I would like to suggest two different formula, one is finding the duplicates & another shows the frequency of the duplicates.

=IF(COUNTIF(A:A,A2)>1,"Duplicate",COUNTIF(A:A,A2))

=COUNTIF(\$A\$2:\$A\$10236,A2)

• Adjust cell references in the formula as needed.

As variant, to have filtered result as

formulas are

``````in E2:
=SORTBY( Tbl_TenderData[[Load ID]:[Tender Request Creation Date/Time]],
