Excel - Find occurences of same value in a column

<ital>

If you would like to find out how many occurrences of the same number occur in a column in Excel, keep reading.<ital>


Example

1111155555555666666666666 (vertical column, although not depicted here)

1's=50 
5's=8
6's=12


We have merged multiple columns into a single column totalling 5000 and we have sorted them numerically, but there are just too many to manually count.

So, if the numbers are different cells in a column and if the total no. of rows is 5000. We can use this formula:

=countif(a1:a5000,"1") 


In case of a whole string or number in one cell we should use this (supposing the cell is E1):

=LEN(E1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(E1,"1",""))
