    I have been asked to parse through large files with an unknown number of unique IP addresses, then provide a count of the frequency that each of those IP's are being seen in our logs.

    I have looked at some other frequency/sum functions but they all seem to depend on knowing the list of IP's and just counting and sorting. My problem is that I do not know the list of source IP's so most of the frequency formulas are not working.

    Any help or thoughts on an easy way to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated.

    -Thanks

    Hello, and welcome to the forum! :awesome:

    If your list is in a single column, you can

    1. Create a PivotTable
    2. Put the one field as a Row label
    3. Also add it as a data field. It'll prb show a Count
    4. Sort row field descecnding by count, if desired
    5. Done, relax!
