Unique values in a range are values occuring only once. This is what I am going to do in this blog post using array formula.

Filter unique distinct values in a range creates a list where all values exists but duplicates are merged into one distinct value. See picture below.

See this blog post: Extract a unique distinct list sorted from A-Z from range in excel

### Array formula in B10:

=INDEX(tbl, MIN(IF((COUNTIF(tbl, tbl)=1)*(COUNTIF(B\$9:\$B9, tbl)<>1), ROW(tbl)-MIN(ROW(tbl))+1)), MATCH(FALSE, COUNTIF(\$B\$9:B9, INDEX(tbl, MIN(IF((COUNTIF(tbl, tbl)=1)*(COUNTIF(B\$9:\$B9, tbl)<>1), ROW(tbl)-MIN(ROW(tbl))+1)), , 1))+COUNTIF(tbl, INDEX(tbl, MIN(IF((COUNTIF(tbl, tbl)=1)*(COUNTIF(B\$9:\$B9, tbl)<>1), ROW(tbl)-MIN(ROW(tbl))+1)), , 1))<>1, 0), 1) + CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER

copied down as far as necessary.

### Named ranges

### How to implement array formula to your workbook

Change the named range. If your list starts at, for example, F3. Change \$B\$9:B9 in the above formulas to F2:\$F\$2.

COUNTIF(range,criteria)
Counts the number of cells within a range that meet the given condition

IF(logical_test;[value_if:true];[value_if_false])
Checks whether a condition is met, and returns one value if TRUE, and another value if FALSE

MATCH(lookup_value;lookup_array; [match_type]
Returns the relative position of an item in an array that matches a specified value

INDEX(array,row_num,[column_num])
Returns a value or reference of the cell at the intersection of a particular row and column, in a given range

MIN(number1,[number2])
Returns the smallest number in a set of values. Ignores logical values and text

ROW(reference) returns the rownumber of a reference
