Hi, I am new to SS!

I have a sheet with a list of employees who have registered for multiple ERGs.

I have tried adding a formula to a separate Metrics sheet to count the number of unique names in the main sheet, but it always says "unparseable".

Below is the formula I used to try to pull this information from the main sheet:

=COUNT({Sheet - Event Registration & Summary with Range 2},(DISTINCT([Full Name]:[Full Name])))

Thank you for any help you can give me! :)

    Hi @Clara Smith

    I wasn't aware that "ERG" stood for Employee Resource Group.

    If your {Sheet - Event Registration & Summary with Range 2} refers to a range of [Full Name]:[Full Name] in the Sheet - Event Registration & Summary, the formula would be something like this;

    =COUNT(DISTINCT({Sheet - Event Registration & Summary with Range 2})

    In my demo solution, I use the Sheet Summary instead of referencing a range from other sheets, but the formula structure remains the same:

    =COUNT(DISTINCT([Full Name]:[Full Name]))

    By ERG is different from what you have asked, but I added it in the summary sheet as it is good to have to find the number of registrant for each EGR.πŸ˜€

    Hi @jmyzk_cloudsmart_jp

    Yes! ERG = Employee Resource Group. :) I didn't know about the Sheet Summary function so your answer is doubly helpful! Thank you so much for taking time to help a newbie. You rock!
