Excel is kicking my ass...

I am trying to figure out how to count a value in excel.

I have email addresses for customers and dates of transactions - about 25,000 customers, and over 60,000 lines of data. I need a countif formula that tells excel to count the email address if there is more than one transaction on the same date. Every transaction line has a unique date.

I have spend all day trying to figure this out, and my boss just told me that it was challenging (I think he's humouring me) and to go home, that we would figure it out tomorrow.

It's so frustrating because I wanted to have this done for him today. He needs it for a presentation next week and I feel like I'm really letting him down.

ARGH! H8H8H8H8!

I think I was actually confusing myself - well, I know I was - because the data was confusing. I was using the same data set to pull different values and then try to compare and contrast them, and part of the problem was that some of the customers fell in both single and multiple date sets if they bought 2 items one day and another item another day. So it was more like I needed a Venn Diagram as well.

*head desk* It's done now. Thank God. But thanks for the help - it was nice to have all the suggestions, cuz I was pulling my hair out!
